also for the great attention to details.

It is not only colour! We add true thickness to the flute surface!Otherwise we can rose gold plate the tube only with colour (flash plating) without adding thickness.

Soldered Tone Holes Since drawn and rolled toneholes are constructed from the flute tube itself, the flute has slightly less metal and weight than a flute with soldered toneholes. A thicker tube will generally provide a darker, richer sound. Many flutists find that they can achieve the flexibility they desire along with the complexity of sound typically associated with soldered toneholes by selecting the optimal tubing thickness. Because soldered toneholes are made separately from the flute tube, they are by nature thicker than drawn and rolled toneholes. This characteristic, combined with the solder or braze that is used to fuse the toneholes to the flute tube, brings more weight to the tube. The result is a flute with positive resistance and a dark, dense sound. Soldered toneholes are generally a good choice for flutists who play with a fast and compact air stream by providing stability without overpowering the flute.The soldered tone holes are perfectly flat so the the pads closing are more reliable over time
New system Headjoint TITANIUM
Stopper plug
This is a device that replaces the standard cork stopper.
It leaves the headjoint to vibrate more freely thanks to the very small contact surface (has only one little rubber gasket, installed and centered handmade).
It consists of one piece to fit in the same way you mount the standard cork stopper.
It is made of TITANIUM, oxidation resistant almost as platinum, extraordinary hardness/weight ratio. It weighs about 40% less than steel but with similar resistance.
This system will make your flute easier to play at  lower notes, and especially the second and third octave sound become warmer  and ready.

without E-Mechanism
A split E mechanism allows venting only one G key while fingering high E. This facilitates production of the high E and it provides a more stable response.At request you can order flute without E-mechanism
Pisoni Pads
DELUXE J YELLOW: Double yellow bladder, pressed felt special treatment. The pads are among the most important elements of a flute. Briccialdi Flutes has decided to rely solely on the Luciano Pisoni Music Center (Trento- North Italy) for the supply of Bearings. World Leader in this field. Result of a perfect blend of Italian craft tradition, high quality materials and advanced manufacturing technology.
Open Holes with plugs central openings are covered by the fingertips when depressed. Students may use temporary plugs to cover the holes in the keys until they master the more precise finger placement needed to play open-hole keys. Some players state that open-hole keys permit louder and clearer sound projection in the flute’s lower register.Open holes can be used for effects such as bending and shading, and the player can crack some holes to bring pitch back up when playing softly on high register notes.  Playing open holes requires and therefore develops fingering
Offset G
In Line G
the G keys are offset slightly from the rest of the keys, mounted on their own posts, separate from the other keys. A growing number of flutists prefer the comfort and hand position on the offset G flute.
French pointed
A key design that connects keys to the rod with a raised, pointed arm which extends to the center of the key. Also refered to as “Styled keys”. It gives more strenght to the keys.
