All M&E Polymer Flutes use a full brass liner in the head joints and tuning slide. The D and Eb flutes are 5 piece and the F flute is a 4 piece. All keyless flutes come with a soft case and all keyed flutes come with a hard case. The rings are steel and will never lose their shine. The keyed Deluxe comes with a brass liner, brass keys and brass rings. These are all then chrome plated and engraved.
