Apart from slight surface werar, this flute is in lovely condition. Just a few maeks on the original case. The YFL 451 punches well above its weight for the price in the used market. As god as many silver headjoint flutes in the £1300 bracket.
Yamaha YFL 451 flute
The Yamaha YFL 451 flute is a fully Made In Japan earlier version of the 514/517. However in reality, the 451 performs just as well. Possibly the best flute under £1000 for a progessing student. Richer tone than a 311, and a more advanced mechanism. We have almost exclusive UK access to these 451 flutes, from our Japanese supplier that deals with Yamaha music schools and colleges in Japan. Hence we carry a constant stock.
