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!
