OVERVIEW

Very solid student flute, highly recommended for young learners.

The Etude EFL-100 flute is a quality instrument to fit any budget. It features a silver-plated head, body, and foot for beauty as well as durability. The C foot and offset-G key help make the instrument easier to hold and play for those with smaller hands.

The foot joint and the head joint fit snugly into the body, with no slipping or wobbling, a common failing of many student flutes. The keys feel great, notably the spatula keys (the ones that rest underneasth the pinky fingers). They are contoured and comfortable, and located precisely where they are accessible without straining. Likewise the thumb keys are smooth and comfortable. The finish is a bright silver plate, very pretty. It also has a lush, rich timbre that projects very well.

Etude believes that price should not be a barrier to experiencing the growth and joy that comes from making music. That' why Etude offers you five of the most popular woodwind and brass instruments at an incredible price: flute, clarinet, alto sax, trumpet, and trombone. And no matter which you choose, you get a great design and outstanding construction that will give you years of musical enjoyment. See for yourself.

FEATURES
  • Silver-Plated headjoint, body, foot, and keys

this is a great beginner flute: I had not played the flute in 12 years (only saxes/clarinet) until I got this, but I had no problems playing right out of the box. The sound is nice and warm, it plays in tune and everything works as it should. The carrying case is minimum standard, but it fits into a pocket on my tenor sax gigbag;-) Obviously you will never get a high quality instrument at this price: the 5 star rating is for its price range. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a low cost flute. Finally, thanks to WWBW for shipping musical instruments internationally when Amazon and others do not. This is neither the first nor last instrument i'll buy from you.

The flute works fine right out of the box. It sounds great for its price. It has some difficulty reaching the higher register, though. If you're buying this flute for a beginner (like in elementary school) or just to play in a marching band, go ahead. If it's for a more serious player, you'd probably want to get something like a Gemeinhardt 2SP or an intermediate flute.

    Comments about Etude Model EFL-100 Student Flute:

    I use this flute for a 4th/5th grade group flute class that is offered at my elementary school. I like it because
    it stays in tune and is tough enough to stand up to the abuse my beginners dish out. The tone is ok. Certainly good enough for the price. The case is very cheap. I just go ahead and order a separate case. I own 6 of these instruments.

    A great flute at an amazing price

    Pros

    • Solid Keyword
    • Sturdy Construction

    Cons

    • Plastic Cleaning Rod

    Best Uses

      Comments about Etude Model EFL-100 Student Flute:

      I'm a woodwind doubler that plays professionally. I bought this flute for my niece for starting band. It's a surprisingly nice flute. The sound is nice and intonation is good. It's a perfect instrument for beginners, or for use in marching band, or for doubling. I'd highly recommend it. Keyword is solid, not likely to bend.

      The case supplied is definitely underwhelming. I'm also not a fan of the plastic cleaning rod that it comes with. But a better case is cheap enough to get.

      • Good For Beginner

      Comments about Etude Model EFL-100 Student Flute:

      This is a beginner flute. It works fine, but like any instrument you pay 100 bucks for, it is not going to last forever. Kids have to be careful with them. If you bend a key back on any of the etude instruments it will often fall off in your hand, so the student has to be careful with it. But, it will get you through beginner band in a pinch, and is fine to make sure your kid sticks with it. A better instrument will be needed by 8th grade in my opinion.

          The keys on the flute didn't hold up. Not made out

          Comments about Etude Model EFL-100 Student Flute:

          Purchased this for my 9 year old daughter who had been playing the flute for one year. I was skeptical about the instrument before purchasing, but the reviews seemed promising. She's had the flute now for several months and doesn't have any problems with it. The only thing she didn't like about it was that she felt the case was too small, but it does the trick!
