      This is a great flute for a beginner. It has good playability and a good tone. It's crafted well so that the student can spend more time playing and less time taking it to the shop. I highly recommend it.

        Perfect for the student, or hobbiest flute player. Great playing action, silver plated(so it looks pretty snazzy) and a nice tone that's well rounded. Great for the classroom, or a nice little jam session. Buy one of these if you're looking to test the waters, or start playing for real, you won't regret it.

          This is a great student flute for an adult or child. My younger sister bought one of these for her 7th grade school band and really loves it. It was so popular that 2 other students are now playing them. They like the overall sound and feel that it is a quality flute and parents love the price.

            Comments about Jean Baptiste JBFL284 Silver Plated Student Flute:

            This is a great beginning flute for the price! It' silver plated, closed holed, and it comes with a case! There are a lot of "student level" instruments on the market right now, and a lot of them are barely playable. This is a well made flute for someone who is interested in learning to play flute, but may not be ready to invest a huge amount of money just yet.

              I have been playing flute for over a year now, and I gotta say, this flute is excellent for any beginning player. You really cannot beat the price, plus it is great for younger players with under-developed hands. The offset-G makes playing this flute easier for any young player. This silver plated flute has a nice, rich tone that facilitates playing from the start! It comes with a very nice case, cleaning rod, and cleaning cloth, which gives this flute even more bang-for-your-buck! Overall, I would definitely recommend this flute to any beginning flute player! This is a great flute at a phenomenal price!

              Comments about Jean Baptiste JBFL284 Silver Plated Student Flute:

              The Jean Baptiste student flute is a great beginner flute for any student. It has a very comfortable fingering system that is especially easy for small hands.

              Playing wise the flute is very free blowing and does not require extensive effort to produce a good sound. It is a great fit for elementary/ middle school players.

              The only drawback to the flute is the need for adjustment. I would recommend getting the flute professionally cleaned and adjusted every 6 months to ensure optimal playability.

                  As a brass player myself, I find this flute is surprisingly easy to play. The silver plating adds a nice warm tone compared to nickel plated flutes. Since it is adjusted in a shop before it arrives at the stores, it is ready to play right out of the box. The offset G gives ease to younger players whose hands are smaller.

                    This is the perfect instrument for your beginner flutist. The action on the keys is very good throughout. It has a nice warm town in the lower end and a bright upper register. The case is very durable and it even comes with a cloth to keep it clean. Don't be thrown off by other reviews. All instruments need adjustments and pad replacements. If you get our extended warranty, that is all covered. This flute should do a beginner well until they are ready to upgrade to a B foot and open holes after outgrowing this flute.
