Performs On Sankyo 901 Pure Silver Model
“When it was time to choose my forever flute, I bought a Sankyo CF 901. I have owned over a dozen flutes in my life, but from the second I tried a Sankyo, I knew it would be able to unlock the tone I have been searching for my whole life. The purity of sound, the balance and smoothness of technique; these are testament to the unique craftsmanship of Sankyo Flutes. Even after the most rigorous and demanding performances, night after night, my Sankyo gives me the confidence and reliability I need to focus on the music.”
