Kessler Custom Piccolo Bundle Savings
Save $300 with purchase new Pearl 665 Quantz Flute!
Every great flute needs a great piccolo! Well, not really “NEEDS” but let’s be honest, what player who has a great flute (like this Pearl 665 Quantz) doesn’t want a piccolo of the same caliber? However, good piccolos tend to be more expensive than good flutes! So, in order to provide you with a better value, we allow you to bundle one of our own Kessler Custom Artist Series Composite piccolos for only $249.00 more! That’s a savings of $300.00!!
Wood Headjoint Upgrade Option
We now also offer the Kessler Custom Piccolo with a new Symphonic Cut wood headjoint. This option costs more than the composite obviously so we will allow you to simply pay the difference ($300). You can also choose to get the piccolo with BOTH headjoints for a little more ($350).
Make sure that you select it at the time of the order! Check it out below:
Upgraded BREZZA Headjoint
The Pearl Quantz 665 Flute traditionally comes with the “Largo” headjoint. Over the years, Pearl has started to allow the Pearl 665 flute to be equipped with other professional model headjoints to further improve the product’s value offering. The first headjoint to be be able to be added to the Pearl 665 flute was the “Forza” cut headjoint that is normally not found until you upgrade to the more expensive Dolce models. The Forza cut provides more brilliance, projection and response over the “Largo”, but the Largo still maintained a mellower tone. The desire to have a headjoint that possessed the improved response & power of the Forza and the richer, sweeter tonal colors of the Largo lead to the development of an all new headjoint design: Brezza!
The Pearl Brezza headjoint offers a rich, sweet & focused sound on the Pearl 665 flute. By utilizing a slightly smaller design on the back of the blowing side of the lip plate and a lip plate drop off that is not as drastic as the Forza, the Brezza flute offers a wonderful balance between tonal depth and power. For players that tend to prefer the more American style professional flute design, the Brezza headjoint will impress. So far, the majority of our teachers locally have found the Brezza to be their preference for their more advanced students. However, for the player who prefers something more open and easier, the Pearl Forza cut is the better option.
About the Rose Gold Plating
First, please note that this Rose Gold Plating is not an option provided by Pearl. This is something that we are doing “after market” on our own. We are using a high end jewelry plating company in California who has experience providing plating for high end saxophone mouthpieces. This plating partner understands the durability requirements for musical instrument plating, which was something that was very important to us. However, we opted to have plating that was over 7 times thicker than saxophone mouthpieces use for exceptional durability. The Rose Gold is an 18k and done using a “Hard Gold” acid-based plating process (much stronger than the traditional cyanide based plating processes used by most platers). If you have any questions about our plating on this Pearl Quantz 665 flute, please give us a call!
Every Pearl 665 Quantz Flute that we send out to a customer is not released from us unless it has been completely setup in our shop first. This is because the setup on your flute is of the utmost importance! Sometimes, an instrument (regardless of who the manufacturer or the price point is) comes in needing 20 minutes of adjustments and then the very next one can require 2 hours!
This is why we perform our setup in our ProShop on your new Pearl 665 Quantz Flute before delivering it to you. You trust us with your purchase and we want to make sure that you are rewarded by giving you your new flute setup flawlessly!
