Perfect, affordable closed-hole option for any level of player!

The Jean Baptiste FL290S Closed-Hole Flute offers superb intonation and projection, making it the perfect flute for a beginner.

As with many of our woodwinds, the FL290S sports a newly designed headjoint that produces a rich full tone effortlessly. This allows players to project with less breath. And with less fatigue, comes more practice time. The FL290S features closed-hole, plateau-styled keys, as well as an offset G key for a more comfortable feel. Keyed to Low C, the flute is perfect for the novice, someone looking to return to the instrument or as a backup instrument for an advanced flautist.

Beautifully finished in silver plating, the Jean Baptiste FL290S Flute looks as good as it sounds.

    This flute is great for beginners! The head joint is designed for ease of playing and it is very light weight. When it's easy to play, it's fun to practice! Thinking of renting an instrument for your child? Owning is a sure fire way to help them stick with it!

          We really do sell a lot of these flutes to beginners. It's just about the best one you can get for a beginner or student.

          Great Beginner Flute!

          By 

          from Orlando, FL

          As a sales associate for Sam Ash, I let a nine year old try out a flute for the first time yesterday. This is the one I chose for her to try because it's light weight, closed holed and won't slip out of her hands easily. She made a sound out of it immediately. Great beginner flute and it will last her through high school!

            JBFL290 Student Flute

              • Beginners
              • Students

              This flute is one of the better student flutes out there. It features a nice balanced, full, and focused tone that is hard to find amongst today's student flutes, especially at this price range! This instrument is by far the best out of the Jean Baptiste line. It's even better than a lot of the flutes at a higher price point. I would definitely recommend this and continue recommending it to beginning flute players!

                  Jean Baptiste's quality control of it's flutes continues to vastly improve, and the 290S is a prime example of that. The flute is responsive in all registers, and it includes a sturdy case with accessories. It's the perfect closed-hole flute for a beginner, and will last through the middle school and high school years.

                  In addition....

                  It's at a great price point with an affordable extended service plan (which I always recommend getting...better to have it and not need it then need it and not have it...).

                  This Jean Baptiste JBFL290 Student Flute Outfit is a great flute for a beginner. It has a great sound and a great feel. The bag is durable and will last you through trekking it to school and back. The pads seal great so you can have a great full tone. If you find anything cheaper it is not a flute!

                  Pros

                  • Durable
                  • Good sound quality
                  • Versatile

                    • Practice
                    • School Band

                    This is a perfect flute for a beginner to get started playing flute with. It plays well, both in the action of the springs and keys and the easy to play headjoint and the silver plated body is beautiful. The offset G key also allows young players or players with smaller hands reach the keys more easily. This is a great choice for anyone who wants to start playing flute or needs a back up instrument but does not want to break the bank.
