The Nuvo jFlute Kit includes; padded case with carry strap, jFlute with stainless steel collars and silver key caps, fully adjustable curved head joint, D foot extension, pull-through cleaning cloth with cleaning/setting stick, left hand key extensions, detachable Firstnote lip plate and standard lip plate, key tool and adjusting screwdriver.
Locked Crown and Plug Setting System
The locked crown prevents accidental removal while still allowing adjustment of the plug by a technician if necessary. Unlike a traditional plug, the Nuvo head joint allows the plug assembly to be driven out by applying pressure directly onto the plug face. This makes for quick and easy cleaning and adjustment if necessary.
Snap-On Lip Plate System
The lip plate can be easily removed using the provided tool as shown. Alternative lip plates will be available to suit different playing styles. The standard lip plate provided with each instrument is easy blowing and provides for good volume and tone control.
Firstnote Lip Plate
The Firstnote Snap-On lip plate is provided as an option with every instrument. It has a recorder-like mouthpiece that enables beginners to play notes and simple tunes right from the very first lesson. This is very encouraging and enables the student to concentrate on fingering and good posture before focusing on the more difficult challenge of mastering embouchure with the standard lip plate.
Radial Setting Marks
The straight head joint has radial setting marks which can be used to help the student to set-up consistently in a way that suits the individual player.
Lightweight and Durable Main Body
The body and key work of the flute are made from advanced polymer resins, which means that the flute is lightweight, durable and 100% waterproof. Perfect for school programs and beginners of all ages.
Silicone Comfort Pads
Two silicone pads positioned for the left hand index finger and the right thumb provide a comfortable and secure location for the support points. This prevents slipping and helps the student to maintain good posture while practicing.
Direct Action Thumb Key
The thumb key acts directly onto the Bb key, which reduces friction and gives a more direct response. It has an easy action and can be played either by rolling or sliding the thumb.
Removable Key Extensions
Key extensions for the left hand middle, ring and pinky fingers provide for more comfort and control particularly for younger players. They can be easily removed and replaced with the standard key caps which are provided with each flute.
Self-Leveling Silicone Pads
The silicone pads have a tiny air gap behind the contact point which allows them to self-adjust to take up any small variations that may arise. This means that the instrument will not go out of adjustment even in extreme use situations such as school programs. The pads are also 100% waterproof so you can wash the instrument or play in the rain!
Stainless Steel Pivot Rods
All rods are made from high grade stainless steel which provides good stability and low friction key action.
Removable Key Caps
The silver colored key caps can be removed with the special tool included. This enables the attachment of key extensions for the left hand middle, ring and pinky keys. It also enables the student to personalize their flute with colored key caps. These can be positioned to guide the fingers to the correct touch keys and color coding can be used for teaching aids.
Bayonet Fit C Foot
Unlike traditional metal flutes, the C foot joint carries only the C and C# keys while the D# or right hand pinky key is positioned on the main body. This means that students can practice without the C foot until they are ready. The C foot is quickly and easily attached with a twist to lock it securely in position.

Comments about Nuvo jFlute Plastic Junior Flute Kit:
While it may be intended for new/young students as they learn and grow, this jflute is also adaptible for flute players like me with progressive disabilities. The lighter weight, curved head joint, and comfortable design -- all the jflute's many features and options in fact -- have made flute playing a joy again and promise to in the years ahead. It is solid and well-engineered, with a very decent tone for my non-professional use. I love that it is low maintenance. I can indeed "leave it out" as they recommend, so that it's easy to grab and play on a whim. In fact, that spunky "j" is smiling at me from the piano stand right now... Highly recommended!
