My daughter had been using my Armstrong flute that I played 20 years ago and all the pads were bad. I bought this one as it was less expensive than fixing the pads on my old flute. It is a beautiful looking instrument. It is lighter than the old one, and probably is not made as durable, but for the price of this one it is great. You can buy one like my old one or 5 of these. It sounds beautiful, comes with a year warranty, and looks very nice. Mydaughter even was offered to play a solo as one of the other girls in the bands flute sounded poor and out of tune. You are not going to get the quality of a $500 flute, but you will get a great first instrument or one for an elementary or middle schooler. Very pleased Mom and daughter.
I was very pleased at the sound quality that my child made as he is just a beginning band member. This instrument makes a beautiful sound, especially for the price. I saved at least $250 by purchasing it here and I did research several music stores.
