A great flute for the smaller player. Perfect for Suzuki method or special applications.
The Jupiter 515RS Student Flute is an instrument truly meant to grow with the beginning flutist. Both a straight and curved headjoint are included with the 515RS, and it features open hole, French-style keys with removable plugs. The curved headjoint is great for smaller beginners until they are able to reach the keys with a straight headjoint. Open hole keys include plugs which are useful during the first year of flute playing, and can be removed one-by-one as the student progresses.
Jupiter's 515RS is all silver-plated nickel silver. A thin wall body responds instantly, and the high nickel content of the metal body produces the richest sound of any student flute. The 515RS is a superb beginner's flute.
The quality of Jupiter Flutes is recognized worldwide. Because flute making is a combination of science and art, Jupiter constantly seeks the latest innovation in design and engineering to achieve ever higher standards. Implementing technology, however, does not deter Jupiter from maintaining contact with leading players, teachers and artisans. These professionals collaborate in the design and artistry that makes each Jupiter flute a truly expressive instrument. Each Jupiter flute has a precise feel, response and key action. Skilled technicians hand seat all pads and hand adjust all mechanisms. This includes final detailing of embouchure hole, riser and lip plate of each headjoint.
