Selmer SFL611 Flute
Fueled by passion and dedication to musicians for over 135 years, Selmer has been making the highest quality woodwind instruments the world over. Selmer continues to be the leader in woodwind design and uses innovation with a commitment to quality that ensures every Selmer flute delivers the best performance experience on or off the concert stage.
The intermediate SFL611 series of flutes are made completely of top-grade American sterling silver features a professional hand-cut headjoint, hand-assembled keywork, and Pisoni Lucien Deluxe pads. The headjoint design for these flutes features a sharp blowing edge, steep drop-off lip plate, and multi-tapered bore for fast and effortless response and articulation. The under and over hand-cutting provides a rich, expressive tone that is even throughout all the registers and gives the performer extreme dynamic control.
The keywork for the SFL611 series of flutes have the highest specifications and tolerances alongside carefully adjusted and balanced German steel wire springs ensuring a feather-light, lightning-fast, and fluid key action. French pointed key arms connect at the back of the key cup and extend to the center guaranteeing greater strength, stability, even pad wear, and ultimately less overall maintenance. The SFL611 series of flutes are an expressive instrument full of depth, richness, balance, and variety across the tonal spectrum. Every Selmer flute is professionally set up, play-tested, and optimally adjusted at the Conn-Selmer Woodwind Factory located in Elkhart, Indiana.
