Kurt Gemeinhardt dedicated himself to creating remarkably responsive instruments with a beautiful tone that would distinguish them from all others.

An instrument of pride for flutists of all talents and abilities. A preference you'll understand once you play any one of their remarkable instruments. Professional Features of the 3OB The 3OB that's Three-Oh-B, not Thirty-B! With open holes, referred to as a French key mechanism, and a B footjoint, the model 3OB flute is one of the most popular step-up flutes offered today. The B footjoint creates a longer tube allowing a greater resonance in the flute, as well as providing advancing flutists opportunities to utilize alternate fingerings for greater facility in the upper register. Open holes provide better tone and the ability for advanced students to learn alternate fingerings, multiphonics, quarter-tones, and other extended techniques used in rock, jazz, contemporary, and avant-garde music. Compare this flute to a new Yamaha YFL-261, the competitor's product. In a blind playtest, I've never seen anyone prefer the Yamaha YFL-261 over the Gemeinhardt 3OB. But remember, this is the new Gemeinhardt, not the old obsolete Gemeinhardts you might have tried before! Beauty and Elegance The Gold-Plated Lip Plate is beautiful to the eye and ear. It is less slippery than a silver lip plate and is hypoallergenic. The inside bore of the headjoint is also gold-plated, which improves the sound. Offset G keys are more ergonomic and comfortable to hold, and are gaining popularity among students and professionals. This configuration adds strength and durability to the mechanism, and is cheaper to maintain. The elegant French case and designer case cover carries your flute in style and safety. Also known as an open hole flute, the French model flute has venting holes on the A, G, F, E, and D keys. B footjoint: A footjoint that extends the length of the flute and adds one more key, thus allowing the instrument to reach down to low B-natural below middle C.
The B footjoint is a standard choice on many step-up and professional instruments, especially when playing contemporary compositions that utilize an extended range. It also improves the intonation.
Offset G: Offset G keys are mounted at a slightly different angle on their own posts. Many flute players consider offset G to be a more comfortable alternative than inline G. It does not change the sound. Gizmo key: Also known as a high C facilitator.When pressed, this key helps the player produce a clearer C-natural in the fourth octave. Gemeinhardt has completely reinvented itself. If you haven't played a brand new Gemeinhardt this year, try one! After a stagnant decade of being owned by investment bankers, Gemeinhardt is back in the hands of. They have completely redesigned their flutes and they are better than ever. The world's most popular brand of flutes once again receives a recommendation from Rich Lupo Flutes and Piccolos. Most of the components of a Gemeinhardt flute are made in the USA. The headjoint, body, footjoint, and keys are. Made in Elkhart, Indiana USA. The parts are sent to Gemeinhardt's parent company overseas where they are assembled, then sent back to Elkhart for testing and adjustments. Gemeinhardt says they can make the parts better in their own USA shop than anywhere else. American-Made parts are stronger and higher quality, and create jobs in America! So while it's not 100% made in USA, the parts that matter are, resulting in amazing quality and price. 2 years of free repairs and maintenance from Rich Lupo Flutes and Piccolos.
