    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...

    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!

    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.

    Flutophone over Songflute

    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.

      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.

      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.

        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.
