Ten Years Old and Still Amazing!


I bought my flute in 2007, and after 10 years, it still works amazingly well. There is a slight bit of tarnish, but I expected that. The sound is still incredible, and the keys are in great shape. I would recommend getting the maintenance done every 6-12 months, and it will last you a very long time. A great flute for a good price!

Good flute


I have had it for almost 2 years now, and it is nice. The sound isn't as good as some other flutes, but it's ok. Check out other flutes before buying this one. It's a great flute for a player new at open hole

Awesome flute and great price!


This flute is great. It is my second flute, I started with a closed hole and wanted to move up after having it for 5 years, and once I first blew into it, I fell in love. It has a great full, warm sound, and it is very consistent in its sound when in different registers. My sales rep, Patrick helped me choose it and he gave me a great price.

I got this five years ago, and it's still amazing. I've had professional musicians comment on what a great flute it is. It's great for intermediate players, and definately too good to use outside (like for marching band). It has a great tone quality and even after five years it looks beautiful. It's a wonderful flute, and it's well worth the price.






this flute is great. i bought it today, tried it out in the store, and was amazed. it is my second flute, i started with a closed hole and wanted to move up after having it for 5 years, and once i first blew into it, i fell in love. it has a great full, warm sound, and it very consistent in its sound when in different registers. the people at samash also helped me and explain maintenance and how to play to my fullest on a open holed flute. i give this flute two thumbs way up :]

I would buy this product again!


My parents purchased me this flute after I completed my 3rd year in band at the recommendation of my band teacher who wanted me to upgrade my flute. We took him shopping with us to make sure we got a great flute. After a long search for the best price, we found it here at Sam Ash. The salesman was great and let me try several flutes to see which I liked best. I went from a closed hole to an open hole flute which is different, but the sound is so much better. I think this is the greatest flute and I'm glad I got it!
