After ten years of continued success, Palatino reintroduced its line of wind instruments in 2004 with a family that included trumpets, clarinets, flutes and saxophones. Redesigned trumpets available with nickel/silver valves and saxophones with die cast keys were just some of the new items developed for the market. The glorious line of winds matched Palatino's efforts for quality, durability and affordability of musical instruments. This closed-hole C flute is made from European bell brass and features 16 injection-molded Plateau-Style keys. Included is a leatherette case.
