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.

Yes but.......

Item advertises "Chromatic fingering chart enclosed". It was not. Call to Customer Service very unsatisfactory. Promised return call from some one at the Company never materialized.

    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.
