This is a revolutionary product used not only in making flutes but also for other instruments. Its density and qualities are similar to Grenaditte wood but considerably lighter than metal or most woods. The material is impervious to weather changes making it an excellent choice for outdoor or indoor use. The design of the Grenaditte flute gives a broader center to each note in comparison with Boehm flutes, thus allowing the flutist to move fluidly and quickly from octave to octave. It also allows the player more possibility of dynamics and faster response, both of which are crucial to the musical expression. We have put a great emphasis on soft dynamics to capture every nuance possible in performance.
The material has an extremely high resistance to abrasion so your flute continues to look new even after years of playing it. The padding system is very stable, so you need not worry about constant adjustment even if you play your flute hours each day. The screws do allow a player to make adjustments if necessary without having to take it to a repairperson, thus saving money and time.
GUO’s revolutionary material and padding makes weather change no longer a problem. People can play our flute in the rain or in the cold of winter.
This is the ideal flute for marching bands or any other outside ensemble. Its light weight will be welcomed by some flutists and may reduce the risk of injury in flute performance. In one case it has helped an injured flutist, Mark Dannenbring, to regain total facility and return to the concert stage.
You can literally own a “Colorful flute”. The New Voice flutes come in different colors. You can personalize your performance. In traditional flute making, high-pollution processes like soldering, polishing and electroplating are necessary. Our flute making successfully avoids these processes. We can proudly say that our flutes are truly low-pollution green products.
