James Galway has built a legacy as a renowned flutist performing for dignitaries and audiences around the world. Sir James partnered with Conn-Selmer to create superior playing instruments that would carry his name for advancing flutists. The JG3B flutes offer students the high quality of a USA made instrument and a full rich tone from the Galway designed headjoint.
The emerald jeweled crown and reversed beading on the tenons add elegance to the flute and makes it stand apart from the rest! The delrin plastic flute plug offers a longer lifespan than traditional cork and will not fluctuate in humidity or temperature changes. The headjoint was designed in collaboration with Sir James and the squarer, more undercut embouchure hole provides a rich, full tone and superior air flow for developing students. The Sterling silver headjoint gives players more tonal character and flexibility. Open hole keys provide students the ability to develop and progress into a higher level of playing, encourages proper hand position and provides more clarity in tone. The offset G key follows the natural contour of flutist's hands and makes playing more comfortable. THe split E mechanism makes the third octave E natural easier to play and speak more clearly. The B footjoint allows students to progress into higher level music and makes the 4th octave C speak more clearly. Signature CNC key cups ensure that pads will seat perfectly flat which prevents air leaks. Bottom adjusting screws provide a sleeker, more professional look. Built in Elkhart, Indiana, the JG3B flutes are designed to inspire students to play and provide a fun, positive experience.
