Pearl Flutes is part of the Pearl Musical Instrument Company which was originally founded in 1946. The flutes are distributed worldwide by Pearl Musical Instrument Company. Pearl Flutes manufacture all of their instruments with French Pointed Keywork, and a Pinless Mechanism system based on the use of socket headed screws. This is different from other flute makers, most of whom would choose to use small pins to hold together critical parts of the flute’s mechanism – which have been known to snag on clothing and let moisture into the delicate internal workings of the flute.
The Quantz series embodies ingenuity, innovation and diversity, and is totally unique in the flute making industry. Aspiring flautist have never been so fortunate.
Every Quantz model has French pointed arms. Once considered solely the domain of handmade flutes, it is now universally provided by Pearl. Our patented Pinless mechanism and One-Piece Core-Bar construction are also present throughout the range. This ingenious yet simple design affords even the student or amateur flautist with an exceptionally efficient and dependable machanism – another industry first.
The Quantz series has now expanded to include 4 models. All of them feature Pearl’s French pointed arms, Pinless mechanism and One-Piece Core-Bar.
