    This flute works very well for the low price. There is a review on youtube comparing a cheaper flute to a high end flute, and they are only subtly different in sound quality. You must cover the mo kong hole which is the one between the blowing hole (chui kong) and the first finger hole. There is a traditional way to do this with dimo membrane which comes with this flute and a glue like substance called erjiao, which does NOT come with this flute even thought the description says it comes with glue. The easiest and most effective way for a beginner to cover the mo kong is simply with a piece of thin scotch tape. If you don’t cover this hole, you will not make a sound. If you have never played a traverse flute, watch some videos on youtube to show you how to blow across the blowing hole properly. It will take some practice, but once you get the feel of it then you are ready to start practicing your fingering, learning the scales, and learning how to read jianpu (numbered musical notation).

    I am not an expert, but a couple of weeks ago I purchased a “C” dizi, which I highly recommend (or a “D”) as a start because it is a bigger instrument with a more mellow sound (more like a flute than a whistle). This model, the G, reminds me of a wooden fipple pennywhistle but with maybe a rounder sound? The Snark says it is in tune and the note with all the holes covered is a D, as expected. It’s very enjoyable to play and not squeaky at all.

    It’s exactly as advertised except I may not have received the glue. The membrane was present, just tucked into the packaging (I almost threw it away accidentally but when sitting down to write this review I remembered a small flyer I’d set aside to read and that “flyer” turned out to be paper around the membrane). Not dinging a star because it’s possible the glue was there and I accidentally tossed it. To compare, my “alto C” dizi from Carrotmusic had the glue and membrane in a small plastic pouch that was immediately identifiable as “do not toss” but for all I know it’s better to store it in paper. It’s not an issue for me, since I’m not ready to experiment with a dimo yet. I’ve found using a piece of bargain cling wrap (the super thin kind, not the nice stuff) wrapped once, twice, or three times depending on what sound I want, works just fine. Scotch tape works too.

    I did not see any instructions; you will need to google “dizi fingering chart” but it’s not at all difficult to find tutorials (goamcan.com/lessons/ for example). Youtube is also a great resource — chinnature has a wealth of information about dizis and xiaos and learning to play them. And once you understand the basics of jianpu (each fingering/note has a number and you play those numbers as directed) it’s pretty easy to google jianpu music sheets. A Snark SN-2 All Instrument Clip-On Chromatic Tuner is also REALLY helpful for learning the fingerings.

    Aesthetically, it’s very attractive and for a fun instrument to learn to play with, you really can’t go wrong with this or a similar “C” or “D” model. Just be diligent and do a little research first so you know what you’re getting.
