101FLU curved and straight head
Buying tips: Nowadays all starter flutes have similar specifications, including split-E mechanism, offset G and closed-hole keys. The most significant choice, determined by the build of the player, is between a flute with a straight or a curved headjoint. A curved headjoint helps a smaller player adopt a more comfortable posture, which of course makes practising more pleasurable. Price is a good indicator of quality; very cheap instruments are difficult and costly to maintain. A fully serviced pre-owned instrument from a reputable manufacturer is always a good low-risk choice for a beginner. Click here to see our current stock of pre-owned flutes.
