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.

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:

Great flute! It has great sound, and it's works perfectly. Only bad thing is if you hold it a certain way the keys will bend or easily break. So, just be very careful with it. Other than that it's good.

Good Student Buy

Comments about Etude Model EFL-100 Student Flute:

My 7th grade daughter had been using inherited pro instrument. It had a problem right before solo and ensemble competition! The repair could not be made in time. Director had no extra instrument. I'd bought her accessories through her and tried the site. Luckily I hit a sale. It arrived fast and literally saved the day. It has a good sound and she and her director were happy she could still play and compete.

Nice

Verified Buyer

Comments about Etude Model EFL-100 Student Flute:

I bought this because I'm a clarinet player and I also sometimes help the flute section, and I felt like it would be a lot easier for me to help them if I actually knew how to play the flute. This instrument is proving to be really easy to learn on, and I don't know much about flutes, but my flutist friends all say that it seems to be a pretty good quality flute for the price.

Not happy

Comments about Etude Model EFL-100 Student Flute:

This was a replacement for another flute that had a sticking cover. This one had a broken valve holder. I am going to try one more but more expensive flute and hopefully it will be a better quality.

      Comments about Etude Model EFL-100 Student Flute:

      I'm a teacher, and I've seen many of these modeled instruments in my bands. This instrument will make a sound, however, it will also fall into disrepair quickly in a classroom setting. It is not built to last as an investment. Your student may be more discouraged with music as a whole with this instrument after it starts to disassemble itself. Consider spending the extra money for the higher quality student models, or rent if your unsure about your child's future interest.

      it plays good but this was not new as keys were scratched and a bit discolored. I called and associate offered to change but it would be a few weeks wait and my daughter couldn't wait as she had activities to play at.
