Tradition and Technology
A fourth generation flutemaker, Kurt Gemeinhardt dedicated himself to creating remarkably responsive instruments with a beautiful tone which would distinguish them from all others. Today, Gemeinhardt continues his legacy by crafting flutes that achieve a delicate balance between superb artistry and sophisticated technology for flutists of all talents and abilities.
Durably constructed of the quality materials, Gemeinhardt flutes feature integrally drawn and rolled tone holes, power-coined keys, and exclusive four-post footjoint construction which make their flutes exceptionally strong. Other features include Gemeinhardt's unique embouchure hole design, proportioned tone holes, and pad cups to ensure even response and extraordinary tone throughout all registers. In addition, a Gizmo key (high C facilitator) is standard on every B foot model flute. Gemeinhardt flutes also feature superior key mechanisms for fast action and outstanding playability.
The KGM Standard Model
This series promises to be one of the best from Gemeinhardt. These flutes have all the professional features, including a gold lip plate, without the professional cost. It also has the H1 headjoint which provides a bit more resistance than the J headjoint, perfect for the player looking for a more powerful sound.
