The Pearl Flutes are world renowned flutes, made by expert craftsmen. Pearl has long been recognised as a manufacturer that truly cares about their instruments. Pearls' group of artists have set themselves apart in their desire and passion to develop an exquisite flute. They have always encouraged the philosophy of 'one artist one flute', which allows the craftsman to explore and perfect each particular instrument. The innovations by Pearl are the one-piece core-bar which alleviates any excessive play around the high C# key and the Bb key.
