      Pearl Flutes

      Arguably the best flute value in the world!

      It has often been said, to judge the worth of an idea or product, you must look at its simplest component. As such, Pearl's most economical flute is surely one of the company's most significant innovations. The new Quantz 505RE flute joins the famous Pearl Quantz series, with this completely new silver-plated instrument. Now, every Pearl flute, from this novice model to our Maesta line, has French pointed arms, pinless mechanism, and one-piece core-bar construction. This means the trademark Pearl sound and intonation standards are maintained.


      • Silver-plated head, body, and C or B foot
      • One-piece, core-bar construction
      • Silver-plated keys (offset or inline G)
      • French open-hole key style
      • French pointed arms
      • Split E

      With the 505, you get step-up sound and quality at a student price. Order today.

        Comments about Pearl Flutes Quantz 505 Series Student Flute:

        I've been playing flute a little over a year stuck w/ an old gemienhardt or used yamaha and anyone whose tried flute and considering of getting one should get the OPEN HOLE MODEL. I recieved it in the mail the other day and it's been great. It's comfortable in your hands and once you get the open hole flute playing down it creates a really great tone. This flute comes w/ removable/insertable plastic corks for the holes if you need time converting from a closed hole flute. The flute comes w/ a really nice case and a bag w/ a pouch that can hold the case and other accesseries. It also comes with two cleaning fabrics. Get this flute if you want to become a flutist.

        Pleasantly Surprised!

        from Chicago

        Comments about Pearl Flutes Quantz 505 Series Student Flute:

        The Quantz 505 plays like a dream! Though marketed as a student flute, it keeps up with most advanced flutes I've played. I primarily bought this to use the body with my Powell Aurumite headjoint but was rather surprised by the tonal quality from the Pearl headjoint. I would definitely recommend this flute and wish I had known about this model back when I was in grade/high school.

        Great flute for the price.

        Comments about Pearl Flutes Quantz 505 Series Student Flute:

        I have had this flute for almost a year. I bought it as I had outgrown my previous flute and am still undecided in what I want in a professional instrument. I am very happy with it. The tone is much improved over a more student level flute. I don't have any experience with how it handles being dropped and such, but I've noticed no scratching through normal use. I also have an alto by Pearl and have been very happy with it as well. I'm sold on the brand overall.
