Paris Flutes master builder is Mr. Yong.
He has been a master flute builder since 1992 with
the purpose of providing the highest quality and best
value for money flutes in the music industry.
In college he studied and specialised in Flute and
in 1989 began working for Jonathan A. Landell’s
Flutes Company where he received his Flute makers
In 1992 he undertook further training where he became
a master builder and worked for both Brannen Cooper
Brothers and Straubinger’s flute company. His
training and experience all came to fruition when
in 1994 he joined the World famous Sankyo flute company.
Now, he's the master builder and director of the workshop
where Paris Flutes are made and holds two patent rights
in his own name.
The Artiste flute is a hand made instrument and to
ensure the continual high quality, modern manufacturing
techniques are constantly being embraced. The head
crown and lip plate are amongst the most important
components of any flute. A rich vibration is created
inside the flute and it provides a sweet and even
sound. The specially designed lip plate makes it easier
to blow in both the low and high registers. The result
is that the flute can be played with less effort and
makes it easier to play for all flautists of all ages.
The Artiste flute has pressure drawn tone holes. The
evenness of thickness in the tube and tone holes helps
maintain a rich textured tone. Since the tone holes
are dragged up at the same time, it is possible to
create the desired tone colour.
A clean surface around the brazed and soldered areas
is possible through an automated soldering system,
which is a computerised system controlling both brazing
and soldering. With this system the temperature and
the flame contacting angles can be totally controlled.
Student model flutes are padded with inexpensive standard
quality pads that wear out easily. This causes a weaker
tone and difficulty in playing. Paris Flutes have
used pads from Pisoni Music. These pads give a huge
extension to the normal life of standard pads which
keeps the flute in your hands and not in the hands
of your repairer.
The new Paris Artiste flute has quickly become one
of the most respected student flutes on the market.
The number one priority for Mr Yong and all at Paris
is our customers. Our customers will be provided with
the best student flute in the World today, fully set
up and ready to play.
