It is an honor and pleasure to recommend the Sankyo flutes to everybody playing the flute. Since twenty years I have always - when someone asked me the question "which flute shall I buy?" - answered that you better try out a Sankyo flute before you decide anything else. The reason for this is the outstanding quality of the Sankyo flutes. It has a most beautiful, mellow, dynamic and expressive sound, a perfect intonation and balance between the three octaves of the flute; it has a very fast and precise attack, and, on top of this it is a flute with an elegant and attractive design. As a flute player you can't ask for more and it fulfils in a brilliant way the four criteria set up by Marcel Moyse concerning the ideal flute sound: I) pure tone, II) exact intonation, III) alive sound, and IV) tonal color. All the different models I have tried of Sankyo flutes ranging from student models up to the most sophisticated golden flutes have always been of an extraordinary quality. To this I would like to add the outstanding quality of the Sankyo alto flute, and the Flauto d' Amore which since short time has been available. The latter is a most attractive flute with an enchanting sonority which merits to be introduced in the repertoire of the flute recital. Finally I am happy to recommend the Sankyo flute to all flute players around the world. My own Sankyo flute, which is the best flute I ever had, has a body of 18 carat gold and a head joint of 24 carat gold.
