Choroi Diatonic C-Flute (7+1, 8+1 holes)Choroi
Classic model of the school flute with diatonic scale in c-major. Contrary to recorders, Choroi flutes possess a mild, easy to articulate tone, that needs a minimum of pressure and allows free, fluent play. This is especially valued when playing in large groups.
The unique shape of the flute offers easy possibility to play half tones by half-closing the finger holes. German fingering system affords no forked-finger playing.
The Choroi Fingering system, uses the left hand small finger as well and has a few advantages over German fingering: The higher notes are much better balanced and intoned.
All the Choroi flutes are characterized by a warm, light, flexible tone. Compared with traditional instruments, the Choroi flutes possess a tone that sounds more like a voice than an instrument.
This unique tone quality leads to a corresponding style of play. A free out breathing, rather than an active blowing, forms the foundation for the tone. The mouth and lip positions also contribute to the tone formation. The fingers gently touch the specially formed finger holes, which allow half-steps to be achieved naturally by half-covering the holes.
All Choroi flutes are treated exclusively with linseed oil. As regular oiling is vital to the flute, we recommend our flute oil. Do not use any other oils (with the exception of pure jojoba oil) as they might damage the flute.
Made of maple wood in Europe. (We have included pictures of a model made of jacaranda wood, although we do not offer this model, simply to give you a better idea of the details).
