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.

Things You Will Get:


Great First Flute


Bought this for my 9 year old son who just started playing. He plays it every days and loves it!



Highly recommended


Love it.



Student? Shmudent!


The Jean Baptiste JBFL290 is a great flute in its price range. It does not have the offset G or the B foot, but the playability of this flute is wonderful. Great for young children or entry level flute players, as the flute is closed keys and very easy to hold. The intonation on these may not be the same as a professional flute but is better than most student level flutes. All in all, this may not be your last flute, but it definitely should be your first!

New or used


Made me question if I had purchased a new or used instrument. The mouthpiece was tarnished and it came with no written warranty.

Seeker of better options



Awesome Upgrades!


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! - Sales Associate @ Sam Ash Clearwater #42

Good Flute


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. This has been a handson review by Rock'n Dave Alford at Sam Ash, Canoga.

Great Beginner Flute!


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!

Great sound


This flute is great for learning. It is easy to set up and easy to maintain. For the money this is a great value. It is an instrument that will inspire confidence in the student and will last a long time. This is a real hands on review by Billy @ Sam Ash Cincinnati.

JBFL290 Student Flute


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! This is a real hands on product review from Sean at Sam Ash in Cerritos.

great starter flute!


This is a great unit! Very good for the price. This flute is great to learn on. I would recommend to a friend for sure!
