Odyssey Premier Range solid silver bodied flute

Regular readers of this page will already be aware of how impressed we have been with the new Odyssey Premier range. They bear little, if any relation to the brand’s earlier incarnations and have really set a benchmark for intermediate instruments at a surprisingly competitive price point.

The all-silver bodied flute is yet another example of the Premiere combination of superb craftsmanship coupled with exceptional finishing. From the head joint that slips smoothly onto the body, to the evenness of the keywork and the ‘click’ on the pads, this flute just feels good the moment you take it out of it’s case – the ergonomics are right - you feel like you want to play it. And the G-sharp key is very nicely set up too.

With a standard lip plate, the flute has a very positive action. The top end is very clean and very responsive – top D to G being really positive and there is an easy facility across the break. Both the intonation and dynamics are excellent. And we really liked the darker, more mellow tones that this flute produces, which really come to life down in the lower register. We reckon it’s just the sort of instrument that would be great for ‘doubling up’ on and its sonic characteristics make it perfect for a small combo.

It comes in a fitted, plush lined, latched hard shell case, which neatly slips into a faux sheepskin lined, zippered nylon carrying case with a full length zippered front pocket, webbed handle and adjustable/ removable shoulder strap.
