A melodic instrument for the most part, the flute has a clear and bright sound with a distinctive warmth, refinement, and subtlety to its tone.
All models in the Odyssey range of high quality brass band and orchestral instruments have been meticulously designed down to the finest details by Peter Pollard. It’s hardly surprising that, with over 50 years experience and having listened to the ‘wants’ of countless high profile musicians, this master craftsman is one of the most sought after custom brass and woodwind builders in the world.
At Odyssey, we recognise the significant contribution that an instrument makes to the willingness of a student to persevere, practice, pursue the process of learning to control and master the instrument, enjoy making music and progress.
The Odyssey Premiere Curved Head 'C' Flute with its attractive price tag are just a few of the features that have made it a favourite with musicians and teachers around the world. Designed by Peter Pollard to be easy blowing, with great tonality and exceptional playability, ensuring those first steps are giant leaps. It comes with both a curved head and a straight head for when the flutist become more proficient, or grows with age.
The curved headjoint, designed for smaller players (usually up to the age of 9 or 10) puts a 'U' bend in the head of the flute, bringing the keys of the flute closer to the player's body.
The response, intonation and all around performance of the Odyssey Premiere Curved Head 'C' Flute coupled with the high quality materials, make this an ideal instrument for the first time player, teacher and professional musician.
