Handmade by James Hall. Hall Crystal Flutes are unique musical instruments with beautiful tones and elegant designs. Both beginner and accomplished musicians find them delightful because of their crystal clear tone quality. Hall Crystal Flutes are hand crafted using Borosylicate glass and are decorated with kiln-fired glass enamels and 22k gold, making each flute a work of art itself.
Each flute is carefully hand tuned and shaped with a modern Boehm taper to produce a note range of two and one half octaves. Included with each flute is a fingering chart, dark green gift box, and a one year manufacturer’s full warranty against accidental breakage.
The largest crystal flute produces deep and beautiful mellow tones. This flute is highly recommended for the adult professional and novice players alike. The D flute is the easiest to play providing the finger holes can be sealed properly. The larger embouchure hole requires less air. The D flute’s tone is deeper and mellower than the smaller crystal flutes.
The F crystal flute has a fingering stretch that is just slightly larger than the G flute. The tone carries some of the warmer deeper tone qualities of the D Flute. While slightly larger than the G flute, this flute should still be playable by an average teen or women’s sized hand.
This middle sized crystal flute produces a tone that is a cross between the piccolo and the D flute. The tone holes are spaced such that an average teen or women’s sized hand can cover them. This is agood choice for the novice flutist.
This lower pitched crystal piccolo makes clean crisp sounds softer and mellower than the silver piccolo. The C piccolo plays one note lower than the D piccolo. Both piccolos are great for small hands, for the fingering holes are placed closer together than on the other crystal flutes making it easier to cover the tone holes. The piccolo, being a higher pitched instrument, requires a tighter embouchure than the larger flutes.
Two patterns available: Carolina and Ivy. The highest pitched and smallest crystal piccolo. Makes clean crisp sounds softer and mellower than the silver piccolo. The D piccolo plays one note higher than the C piccolo. Both piccolos are great for small hands, for the fingering holes are placed closer together than on the other crystal flutes making it easier to cover the tone holes.

The Hall Crystal Flutes cleaning rod is made from 100% cotton flannel over a foam core. It is designed to fit the bore of each flute. Only one pass is needed to remove accumulated moisture and restore the flute's clear tone. The cleaning rods come in three sizes.
