Our flute program

From the VIENTO FL 108 for beginners to the FL 308 made of Silver 925, with engravings, for the ambitious flutist - VIENTO offers a complete range of concert flutes. For young students flutes with a curved headjoint are available. All flutes are offered with either closed holes or open holes.

VIENTO flutes is the only flute manufacturer worldwide to offer concert flutes also in left versions for physiotherapy, teaching and for left handed flutists.

The VIENTO quality certificate

Before delivery every concert flute is personally inspected, played and tested by Christina Xu. Intonation, response and tightness of the keys are tested, among others. Each VIENTO flute then gets a signed quality certificate. Such an effort in quality control is not common in this market segment. But these measures guarantee a consistently high level of quality for all our flutes.

5 year warranty

Each VIENTO concert flute comes with a 5 year warranty. If ordered online, our sales or return policy allows you to test the instrument for 30 days.

What to consider when buying a flute

The following explanations are for beginners who have little or no experience with a western concert flute.

A. Open holes (ring keys) or closed holes (covered keys)

A flute with open holes allows the flutist to play with more tone variations. However open holes require a somewhat more precise dexterity.
We offer all our concert flutes in both variants, whereby our open hole versions are provided with removable silicon plugs. Thus they can be played “open“ as well as “closed“.

B. The material – nickel silver, nickel plated, silver plated, sterling silver

Nickel silver (German silver) actually does not contain any silver, although it has a very silver-like appearance. It is an alloy made of copper and zinc, with approximately 10% nickel added. For well over a hundred years nickel silver has been a standard material in flute making. It is not only very durable, but corrosion resistant as well.

Nickel plated is the surface of concert flutes of the lowest price category. Due to allergy problems we do not recommend such low cost flutes.

Silver plated flutes are made of nickel silver and the surface is plated with a thin layer of silver. The silver plating has no influence on the sound of a concert flute, but the feel of the surface as well as its quality are improved and the contact with nickel is avoided.

Sterling silver (silver 925, solid silver) is the name of silver alloy containing 92.5% silver. Because 100% or pure silver would be too soft for the instrument making, copper and small portions of other metals are added which decisively improves hardness of the material. Silver improves the acoustic properties and the overall sound of a flute. Unfortunately the price also increases with the application of this precious metal.

A western concert flute can also be made partially from silver, for example with a headjoint of solid silver. This improves the acoustical sound particularly in the overtones.

C. E mechanism / Offset G

With an E mechanism the lower G key can be closed, which allows a fast and correct response of the e‘‘‘‘. Most modern concert flutes today feature an E mechanism.

Offset G or inline? Flutes featuring an offset G have the two keys for the left hand ring finger on an extra axis. Inline flutes have those keys mounted on the main axis.

D. The C4

The C4 (double top C) is a weak point for many concert flutes in the lower and middle price segment. Whether a flute can play the double top C well or not, can only be found out by playing it. However, for this some experience in flute playing is required.

E. The sound – loud and quiet

When testing a flute it is recommended to play something intentionally quiet. The flute should still deliver a clear, clean and effortless sound.

If you have already some experience with playing a concert flute, it is recommended to test the instrument before purchasing it. You can try our VIENTO flutes at any of our appointed dealers without any obligations. However, if you would like to order the flute online, we grant a 14-day unlimited right of return to allow you the opportunity to assure yourself of the sound and quality of a VIENTO flute.

The history of the western concert flute

Flutes belong to the oldest instruments known to mankind. However, the concert flute in today's design, also called western concert flute or transverse flute, is a rather young instrument. In 1847 the German flutist and flute maker Theobald Böhm introduced a cylindrical transverse flute made of metal (till then wood was used). In principle, this revolutionary new key system is still in use today. Although today's flutes are made of metal, the western concert flute belongs traditionally to the family of the woodwind instruments.

There is one piece of music that is loved by everybody - flute performances in casino. It is also known as pipes, flutes or cellos and has been around since the 16th century. During those times, flute performances were performed all the time in the Italian courts and casino . They were mostly heard during card games but today they are mostly used in casinos untamed crowned eagle slot A live flute performance in a casino can be very impressive and exciting for those who attend it and are willing to take in the noise and drama. Flute players do not usually get the chance to perform their flute performances in a casino due to the fact that the casino owner and management does not allow them. But flute players can perform their flute pieces at home and even in public if they have the proper tools and materials to make such a showcase happen.
