Yamaha Intermediate model flutes share similar designs as our Professional series—and incorporate many of the same features—yet are available at a lower cost due to innovative manufacturing techniques. They offer surprisingly high quality for their prices.
Yamaha's 300 series flutes are individually assembled and adjusted by hand. They feature the same design as the 400 series, with sterling silver headjoints, and nickel-silver bodies and footjoints. They offer full yet focused tone, accurate intonation, and a comfortable playability.
Featuring a double flare taper and a unique embouchure hole undercut design for excellent response and a warm rich tone, the CY headjoint helps beginners quickly learn to produce a beautiful sound. More advanced players will appreciate its even, quick response in all registers.
All key shapes and placement have been ergonomically designed for a comfortable, natural-feeling performance. Manufacturing processes have been redesigned from the ground up to achieve substantially improved precision that not only leads to greater mechanical accuracy, but also minimizes the need for readjustment over time.
Pointed Key Arms
A#, F# and other non-fingered keys feature pointed key arms. This beautiful key design is inspired by traditional European style.
Yamaha's unique screw resistance inserts allow smooth adjustments while preventing gradual loosing of the screws. For easier access, the screw positioning has been changed.
An optional curved headjoint makes flutes easier for young children to hold and play. It comes with a convenient carring which holds both headjoint and flute case.

Yamaha products are made using lead-free solder. After years of study, Yamaha has discovered a new solder which is not only better for the environment but actually adds harmonic breadth to the sound.
