The flute is an instrument which also holds value as a work of art. SANKYO offers beautiful engravings on the body of the instrument as an opiton. By personalizing your flute with the hand-carved designs of proficient craftsmen you will certainly feel an ever deeper attachment to your instrument.
At SANKYO FLUTES, we have succeeded in using a machine to recreate the aesthetic properties of engravings created in the hands of craftsmen. It is also possible for you to have your own personal design engraved onto your Lip Plate of Head joint. Please place your order.
[ NEL ]
The NEL is intended to facilitate high E without the conventional "split E" Mechanism that closes the G# key while leaving G open. An insert makes the opening of the G hole smaller. This also makes the G-A trill easier. This option is now standard on all SANKYO models.
[ E-Mechanism ]
This option makes the playing of the third octave E very easy (played by a special rocker key on the right hand). This option is now standard on all SANKYO models.
[ C# Trill ]
This extra key enables the player to trill from B to C# (a problem in the Mozart D major Concerto as well as in several other pieces).Available on the Hand-made DN and Hand-made SR models.
