Boehm System Flute FAQ:
- What is a C footjoint?
A C foot joint means the lowest note you can play with this foot joint attached to the flute is the note C.
- What is an offset G?
A flute with an offset G means the G key, operated by the left ring finger, is off centre and not in line with other keys. Because this finger is shorter than the middle finger it is more comfortable and ergonomic for this key to be offset, making it easier to reach than if the key was inline (keys all in a straight line). This makes an instrument with an offset G key easier to operate for players with smaller hands.
- What is a split E mechanism?
A split E mechanism increases the stability of the flute's third register E, helping to produce a stronger tone and improving intonation, and making the note easier to produce by closing certain keys on the flute.
- What is the benefit of open holes?
Open holes achieve several things. They offer the player a greater tonal variation, allowing for the playing of micro tones, multi phonics and slides - techniques which commonly feature in contemporary or jazz music. It is typically recommended flute players move to an open hole flute from Grade 6 upwards. Closed holes are preferable for beginner to intermediate flute players. The McNeela Open Hole Concert Flute comes with tone hole plugs to facilitate players making the transition.
