These world-renowned pads are made of mostly synthetic materials. The advantage of this is that they do not absorb moisture and as a result do not change shape. This consistency gives the pads a high degree of reliability.
Synthetic pads, which are made using a stable plastic base and durable synthetic leather, have been widely adopted as essential components of a high quality Handmade flute. Compared to traditional felt and paper pads that require frequent adjustments, Straubinger pads are more tolerant of environmental change and remain in top playing condition for a longer period of time.Synthetic pads with stabilizer enables the player to achieve a clear response with a more mature, nuanced sound.
|Open Holes with plugs||central openings are covered by the fingertips when depressed. Students may use temporary plugs to cover the holes in the keys until they master the more precise finger placement needed to play open-hole keys. Some players state that open-hole keys permit louder and clearer sound projection in the flute's lower register.Open holes can be used for effects such as bending and shading, and the player can crack some holes to bring pitch back up when playing softly on high register notes. Playing open holes requires and therefore develops fingering accuracy that is not essential on plateau keys. Some clever trills that make use of the open hole venting for better pitch. Open hole flutes can be used as closed hole by inserting plugs in the holes|
