Comments from customers who bought this item:
Split E and Offset G Mechanisms
This flute has two mechanisms that make it an easy instrument to play. The offset G mechanism is more suited for instrumentalists with smaller hand spans. The G key is positioned slightly further away from the flute in a more ergonomic position for smaller hands. The split E affects the top E on the flute, which is generally a weak sounding note. The added mechanism improves the final quality of the sound, making it a more responsive instrument.
High Quality Body
The body of this student flute has been made from a cupro-nickel body, which is not only a lightweight alloy, but is also corrosion resistant, meaning that this instrument will last a very long time. The finishing has been produced from a combination of nickel and silver, which gives a hard wearing attractive finish to the instrument.
Ideal For Beginners
This instrument takes into account the needs of the every day learner. The closed hole (or Plateau) design on the flute allows for a tight close between the double skin pads and the drawn and rolled holes. This improves intonation, which is vital for a beginner flautist. The springs have been developed so that it has a light and easy to use action, which is suited to beginner instruments.
Includes Everything You Need
A durable hard case is included to make transporting the instrument easy and safe. Also included is a polishing cloth and cleaning rod to keep the instrument in top condition.
Curved Head Flute
This headjoint enables the younger learner with a smaller arm length to be able to access the flute more easily. The headjoint bends in on itself, enabling the student to be closer to all the keys and therefore able to get to the bottom register of the instrument. At Gear4music, we also include a straight headjoint for the time when the curved one is no longer needed.

Gear4music products are produced ethically and responsibly to meet the expectations of a caring world.
The product price includes 5 years' warranty and 180 day money back guarantee.
However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.
The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:
- Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
- Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 180 days (terms apply after 30 days)

- Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
- If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
- The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount
Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.
For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.
This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.
