The Maesta series is at the heart of the Pearl handmade flute range and has been the jewel in our crown for many years. Pearl’s tradition of innovation and expert craftsmanship is fully shown with the use of Maesta “Pristine” .970 Silver and the amazing .997 Pure Silver material options, offering players astonishing projection of sound when compared with the traditional .925 Sterling Silver. Maesta flutes can be fashioned using traditional soldered tone holes or contemporary drawn tone holes.
Nothing is automatic. Every operation is controlled by the eyes and hands of a skilled craftsman. The final assembly brings all the carefully crafted components together for the finest precision.
The Maesta is available with a variety of Pearl Japanese hand-made headjoints: Forte, Vivo, Vivace and Calore.
This headjoint is a crowning achievement for Pearl. This headjoint is designed for large orchestras and concert halls. The Forte is very responsive, and produces a dark centered tone and enables a wide dynamic spectrum throughout the entire range of the instrument.
