It has often been said, to judge the worth of an idea or product, you must look at its simplest component. As such, Pearl’s most economical flute is surely one of the company’s most significant innovations. The new Quantz 505RE flute joins the famous Pearl Quantz series, with this completely new silver-plated instrument. Now, every Pearl flute, from this novice model to the Maesta line, has French pointed arms, pinless mechanism, and one-piece core-bar construction. This means the trademark Pearl sound and intonation standards are maintained.
