Comments about Pearl Flutes 305 Series Bass Flute:
I went with this flute because it has the features I wanted, it is moderately priced (as bass flutes go), and I love Pearl flutes. A bass flute with a B foot! How cool is that? To me, it is worth the slight addition to the length and weight of the instrument (real concerns for the tired arms of bass flautists) for the spiritual satisfaction of being able to hit that low B. The instrument has a wonderful resonance and projection in the lower register. But it is not strictly a bass or harmony instrument. In the upper registers it sings with a beautiful falsetto tone that has a different character from the same range of a concert flute. With the split E and the same keys and fingerings that most of us are used to from our concert flutes, this flute is a breeze to play. The action is soft and quiet despite the larger pads and holes. No clickety-clack to distract from the pure, flute tone. There are higher-end bass flutes out there than this one, but they are considerably more expensive, and I have not had the privilege of playing one. I am happy with my Pearl!
