Katharina plays a Maesta 14K Gold flute with Forte headjoint (MS14KRBE/F). In Katharina's words - "I am very fortunate that this wonderful instrument found me at an early age. When I held my gold flute in my hands and played the first notes on it, I was immediately captivated. The warm, soft and multi-faceted sound of the instrument immediately inspired and enchanted me. The glitter of the tones in the high octave is a gift every time. I enjoy playing my flute and I love the sparkle in my audience's eyes after a concert with this beautiful instrument. This flute is just right for me because I can use it in many ways. It harmonizes incredibly well with other instruments, sounds brilliant as a solo instrument, but also blends smoothly into the overall sound of an ensemble. The sound is changeable and flexible and supports me optimally, as a soloist, chamber musician, orchestra musician or in crossover projects for pop and jazz."
