Superb step-up instrument.
The Gemeinhardt New Generation model 3SBNG offers the resonance and tone quality of a solid silver headjoint and body combined with the durability of a french key mechanism. The new style NG1-shaped lip plate headjoint offers ease of response, articulation, and beautiful sound creation throughout the registers. With a B footjoint, silver headjoint and body, the 3SB NG offers specifications many teachers recommend as the ideal step-up flute for advancing musicians. The B footjoint provides a longer tube allowing a greater resonance in the flute, as well as providing flutists opportunities to utilize alternate fingerings for greater facility in the upper register.
This instrument will carry a motivated student through high school and college and is even presentable in professional contexts. It is beautiful to behold, to play, and to hear.
