Aesthetically and tonally stunning, handcrafted wooden flutes offer beautifully warm, rich tones - thanks both to the wood bodies and to the design and skill of flute artisans. All wood flutes feature the same substantial power of projection found in professional silver flutes - making these instruments suitable not just for solo and chamber music, but also for symphony and philharmonic orchestra performances.
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 Symphonique 'C' Flute has open holes that do several things; the most useful being the variations and sounds, and notes that the player can achieve. The open hole allows for micro tones, multi phonics, and slides mainly featured in contemporary or jazz music. It also encourages good overall technique and playing posture.
As a company producing some of the world’s finest brasswind instruments, Odyssey recognise the fact that protection whilst travelling with a delicate instrument is paramount. To ensure players can maintain a high standard with this instrument, Odyssey has included a cleaning cloth and rod, whilst a plush lined, beautiful hardshell wood case with padded carry bag takes all the worry out of commuting with such a delicate instrument.
