This instrument's lightweight construction will be welcomed by some flautists and may reduce the risk of injury in flute performance. In one case it has helped an injured flautist, Mark Dannenbring, to regain total facility and return to the concert stage.
The Guo Tocco's revolutionary material and padding makes weather changes no longer a problem. People can play the Tocco flute in the rain or in the cold of winter. This is the ideal flute for marching bands or any other outside ensemble.
The material is highly resistant to abrasion and will retain its pleasing appearance without worry.The new padding and mechanism will reduce the need for repair. In traditional flute making, high-pollution processes like soldering, polishing and electroplating are necessary. The Tocco successfully avoids these processes. Guo proudly say that their flutes are truly low-pollution green products.
