The Yamaha Standard flutes have become a favorite among teachers because of the open sound and easy playability. All Yamaha wind instruments come with a limited 5-year warranty.

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.
