Great Quality Flute!!! September 14, 2011
Reviewer: Charles Collins from Middletown, NY United States  
I got this flute because it was recommended to me, and it payed off. The quality on this flute is much better than the flutes I've used in the past.  I'm very happy with it.

I purchase this flute for my daughter (at a discount of course when I called in), and she loves it. It's band approved and I save a lot of money! No more renting!
