    Excellent Flute if you're a parent trying to help your child start playing in school band. This flute is well constructed and has a great tone to it. It's also nice that it comes with a case. Great buy if you're just getting into flute.

      Comments about Jean Baptiste JBFL284 Silver Plated Student Flute:

      The 284 Silver Plated flute by Jean Baptiste is one of the best options for a beginner flute player. At about the same price to rent a flute for a year, the player can own the flute forever.

      The biggest difficulty for beginning flute players is getting a consistent sound out of the flute. Many beginning, 'entry-level' flutes are notoriously hard to play and result in huge variation in sound volume and tone. The 284 is one of the easiest flutes to play and is a rock-solid piece that, with routine maintenance, could last a player until they are ready to upgrade to a serious, intermediate or pro level flute.

          This a super nice item from Jean Baptiste! Very easy to play with a great warmth in tone. This is a slid choice for the beginning flute player. It also serves great for a marching band instrument for those who dont want to take their high-end flutes outside in the elements.

            This student flute can stand the test of time. The sound produced from this flute will amaze you. The silver plate only requires a quick wipe down from time to time to keep its amazing finish so no need to worry about it losing its luster. I am a sales associate @ Sam Ash Ontario.

                This is a quality student flute at a quality price. My kid needed it and I didn't want to break bank on something he may not stick with but at the price this silver plated flute was at, I didn't mind taking the risk. Turns out hes getting good. He practices a lot and he goes to all his friends with it tucked away in its included premium case so its protected. This was definitely a steal!

                  This flute is a great flute for any beginner. It was designed to be easy to play and you can't beat the price. This beginner flute has a superior tone and quality than other student flutes in this price range. This model is closed hole, has an offset G, is sliver plated, and comes with a nice travel case. The offset G allows younger players to play with ease and sound great. A great flute for a beginner or a player on a budget!
