    Comments about Grover-Trophy Flutophone:

    I work with special needs children and the notes are much easier to produce on the flutophone vs. the recorder. (I believe because the holes are raised so fingers find them more easily)

      Comments about Grover-Trophy Flutophone:

      When I was in grade school back in the 60's ...yeah I know ... I'm old ... well sir I remember getting one of these in my music class.

      I lost it long ago or maybe it was just thrown out due to wear I don't know which, but for the price I got one to play around with.

      The tone quality is something to be desired, but let's face it ... it's a flutophone, I don't think it is design to sound like a high price recorder of flute.

      Great buy for the price. Something for your kids ... or the kid in you if you have a love for playing music.

      Flutophone over Songflute

      By Archaelobsteryx

      from Gainesville, FL

      About Me Professional Musician

      Ask me a question

      Pros

      • Adjustable Mouthpiece
      • Can Play Chromatic Scale
      • Durable
      • Good For Small Hands
      • Stands Upright On Bell

      Cons

      • Not Perfectly In Tune

      Best Uses

      • Children's Music Ed
      • Introduction To Winds
      • Novelty Sound

      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.

            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

            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.
