    my mom bought this flute for me because i played flute for 6th grade and the last flute i had and its tone was terrible. i just got it today and played a few songs and the tone was great i am so glad that i chose this flute for my second flute for 7th grade and hope it will last trough high school.
    i definitely recommend this flute for anyone who wants to play flute or has played flute before

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: Gemeinhardt 1SP Student Flute
    I bought this for my daughter and had to bring it to be serviced after only 4 weeks of play, because her music teacher realized that there wasn’t enough cork under one of the keys. I brought it to an expert to have it replaced and he told me that the missing cork was the least of the flute’s problems. He showed me how the inner tube of the head joint was split and peeling in two different areas. He told me that this type of damage was not normal after 4 weeks of playing and careful handling of an instrument. He further demonstrated how with minimal effort he could compress the tube which demonstrates that the metal was very thin. He showed me another flute that was used that did not flex the way that this flute did. I was shocked because I thought that the name Gemeinhardt ensured that I was getting a quality flute. Come to find out, there are different levels to denote the quality of an instrument and that often times on-line sellers will buy up the lower quality instruments that were demos, seconds, or not the normal quality and sell them cheaply on-line. I was very disappointed with this instrument, but luckily amazon was willing to refund my money. My father always said that if a deal seemed too good to be true – it probably was. Just because it is a good price does not mean that it is a good buy. Go to a reputable music store and get help selecting an instrument.
