Choroi Diatonic C flute German fingering 440 HZ 55103000

Classic model of the school flute with diatonic scale in c-major. Contrary to recorders, Choroi flutes possess a mild, easy to articulate tone, that needs a minimum of pressure and allows free, fluent play. This is especially valued when playing in large groups. The unique shape of the flute offerseasy possibility to play half tones by half-closing the finger holes. German fingering system affords no forked-finger playing.

All the Choroi flutes are characterized by a warm, light, flexible tone. Compared with traditional instruments, the Choroi flutes possess a tone that sounds more like a voice than an instrument.
This unique tone quality leads to a corresponding style of play. A free outbreathing, rather than an active blowing, forms the foundation for the tone. The mouth and lip positions also contribute to the tone formation. The fingers gently touch the specially formed finger holes, which allow half-steps to be achieved naturally by half-covering the holes.

All flutes are treated exclusively with linseed oil.
