Designed and personally tested by Thomas Pinschof, they are manufactured to a professional standard in a quality previously only reserved for hand made, top of the market models. Embouchure hole and chimney are critical in directing the airstream into the flute and a very special undercut he gives every head joint allows the flute to produce a flexibility, stability and refinement in sound only a flute player can achieve. His high expectations guarantee that each flute has extraordinary qualities and truly deserves the name "Magic Flute": With a perfect scale, superb response and stability throughout the range in staccato as well as in the softest slures, even on the traditionally most difficult notes, and of course huge flexibility in sound, allowing for tonal colours most flute players can only dream of, it is capable to cope with plenty of grunt when needed or the gentlest and most delicate fade into nothingness. In other words, a flute without limitations that just about plays itself. All Magic Flutes come with a 5 year factory guarantee as well as a five year warranty.
