Yamaha YFL 511 vs. YFL-614

Post by sydflute » Sun Nov 24, 2019 11:42 am

I have old full silver 511, now I have a chance to buy 614 for reasonable price (1000 EURO). Would it be an upgrade, I see 614 is not silver flute (nickel silver)!?

Any opinions? Thanks

Both flutes have a sterling headjoint and body with silver-plated nickle silver keys. The 614 may have a slightly better headjoint but you should try it to see if you find it better for you.
