I bought several of these clarinets for my beginner students. I was given a small budget, so I went with something inexpensive.When the flute came in, we discovered that the cases were not good quality. All the cases were difficult to open. One case would not latch shut properly. We fiddled with it, finally latched it, and then it came open again while carrying the case.The instrument itself sounds fine, but many keys stuck after a week of playing.If you do not have money to purchase better quality, then this is okay, just be aware of the problems you might find.

    Comments about Etude Model EFL-100 Student Flute:

    I bought this flute for my 6th grade daughter, I spent only [$] and my daughter won a 1st place award, at first the music teacher did not want me to buy a flute online, I understand that schools get a commission from companies when students buy their instruments, but their flutes were $1,300 comparing to my flute, only [$], some teachers and judges were astound because my daughter had a very cheap flute and got first place. Be smart, it doesn't matter if you buy the most expensive instrument for a beginner, because what's important is the dedication and persistence. The most expensive instrument doesn't make you a better musician. I strongly recommend this instrument for beginners.

        Purchased the EFL-100 Student Flute for my 6th grade band student. Flute is great however, the flute case was not worth anything. The handle broke first than the latch broke apart. Had to purhcase a replacement case.

            I'm a keyboard/winds player in a Rock and Roll band and bought it for songs that need flute (Jethro Tull, Nights in White Satin, Can't You See). Sounds good by itself and sounds great mic'd. Very good low 'speaking' and good mids thru highs. Can't beat it for the price.

            Got this instrument for my daughter's 6th grade band. This is her first year and she wanted a new instrument vs. a used one or a pawn shop purchase. I definately made the right choice. This is a well made and quality flute. Her teacher even said that she was impressed with it considering how little it cost. I would shop from this site again in the future!

                My daughter played in her school 5th grade band last year using the schools instrument (flute). This year being in the 6th grade they had to buy or rent their own instrument. I looked around for weeks trying to find a student flute, all were too expensive even in renting, until I found the "Etude" student flute I was so shock at how reasonable the price. The flute is the same flute she used in the 5th grade. This flute comes with case and cleaning cloth tool. This flute is perfect for beginning players, it also plays very well. My daughter fell in love with her new flute and the best part of it all is that it's her's!!!

                  I purchased this flute for my daughter, a 5th grader/novice. I was hesitant to invest a lot of money initially because I was not sure if she would stick with playing or not. I was really glad I found this "starter kit" at such a great price. It seems adequate for her needs.

                        I have played numerous instruments in the past and decided to give the flute a try (self-taught). I purchased this flute because it was well-priced and had received positive reviews from previous customers. The flute is... a flute! I cannot speak to the relative quality, but I love it as a beginner player.

                        Only complaint is the cloth that comes with the flute - it's pretty bad (non-absorbent). Get another for sure (or just use an old handkerchief)!

When got this flute he was in love and playing it for hours, he loved the scales on this flute. I was worried that I pay too little, but my son was extremely satisfied!

                            This flute is for my daughter who is entering 7th grade in the fall. The school supplies flutes through sixth grade. We purchased a banjo a few years ago and are very happy with it so when we needed the flute we know where to look. The price was right and the quality is good too. The bar caee is. Perfect as the flute spends Latino time being jammed into a school locker.

                            Thanks

                                My son was selected to attend a school of the arts starting his 6th grade year. He has never played any instrument before, but decided that he wanted to learn the flute. His major at this school is Band and all beginner students have to start out on a wind instrument.

                                The flute we purchased for my son, from Musicians friend, was perfect for our needs. His band teacher even told us that he was very satisfied with the quality of this product. And I am saisfied with the price of this product.

                                I would recommend this product to first time buyers who need a starter flute. It is definitely a great buy for the price.

                                I bought as a gift at Christmas. Honestly I had to send it back, It was not working right. Musicians Friend exchanged it and it works, Yeah!
