        Flutophone over Songflute

        Comments about Grover-Trophy Flutophone:

        I own both the Trophy Flutophone and the Conn Songflute. The Flutophone is longer than the Songflute by almost 2 inches, but the distance between the holes on each is nearly exactly the same. However, I choose the Flutophone over the Songflute for the following reasons. The Flutophone is able to play a full chromatic scale while the Songflute is not. The Flutophone can stand upright on its bell which is useful for storage and drying. The mouthpiece of the Flutophone can be adjusted for intonation, or removed completely for cleaning purposes; the Songflute is all one piece. The Flutophone has more tone and less breathiness than the Songflute.

            Excellent for group to learn because it is fun, and *appears* as a toy, but is a serious musical instrument. AND its made in US !!
            Would like to see the Flutophone made as tenor, and bass sizes.

              Comments about Grover-Trophy Flutophone:

              I purchased 10 of these for stocking gifts, but the grandkids were here that day so I just ended up passing them out to everyone as a tickler gift and my lord the kids loved them. 10 of these at once sounds like an orchestra tuning. Then i told the kids there is a 20 for the first one to play happy birthday by ear they went nuts... from the 5 yr old to the 16 yr old were trying to figure out that tune, which led to an explanation of the C major scale to help them along the way... pure joy and i know someday soon i will be out a 20 to one of the grand kids... lol...

              Wild Thing

              By Tubatoothpaste

              from Central Illinois

              Comments about Grover-Trophy Flutophone:

              This is a fun little toy. I bought it to play the instrumental on "Wild Thing," and it works great for that. The sound is perfect, and the fingerings are a lot simpler than for a 4-hole ocarina.

              The standard

              By ElemMusTchr

              from Missouri

              Comments about Grover-Trophy Flutophone:

              I taught elementary school music for 30 years----every year I taught about 100 4th graders to play flutophones. The range is one octave and one note. Fingering is simple compared to recorder. Blowing is more forgiving than recorders. Overall, a great beginning instrument to learn on.

              Better than the average recorder!

              By Anonymous Rockstar

              from Pittsburgh, PA

              Comments about Grover-Trophy Flutophone:

              If you've ever played an LMI or other standard plastic recorder, the sound is usually cheap and unpleasant. This little thing, however, somehow manages to capture a really good sound for it's extremely low price. It is plastic, so it's good for kids, and it's especially a good buy for somebody who can't afford a regular flute, or even somebody who just wants to play more instruments. I definitely recommend grabbing one of these and toying with it with another purchase. The price will barely touch your wallet, and it's a ton of fun to play around with.
