I love this flute! The instrument is beautiful, the tone quality is phenomenal. Even my band teacher was impressed! It comes in a nice case with a swab cloth, rod, and polishing cloth. The stoppers are already in (which is great...my friend's flute came without the stoppers in and she spent two hours putting them in!) When I play I can hear the difference between it and my old flute. If you need a new flute I HIGHLY recommend this one!
