The foot joint doesn't fit properly to the body. The case was broken. The flute is out of tune and I cannot get it tuned to the correct pitch. It sounds awful and it cheaply made. I am just starting back onto the flute after playing for over ten years. Even as a flute as a start up, its a terrible investment.

    Comments about Etude Model EFL-100 Student Flute:

    This is a great flute! I've been playing for a year and a half in school band, and this flute makes playing the lowest c like breathing. The shape and material for this flute is great, and the case may not be hard, but it's mechanics make it worth it. Over all I think this is a great flute if your in a school band or by your self.

        My husband and I ordered the Etude Flute for our daughter to play in Jr. High band. Her band instructor has told us that our daughter will not be able to play her flute with the band, but will be holding the banner because her flute is inconsistent and of poor quality. He stated that he has had to fix her flute several times in class and we have now had to purchase one from another company.

            I had to order this item 3 times and return it twice because I received a used instrument twice. It is Bothersome when you're expecting a new instrument and the one you get is used and marked by a previous owner.

              A love hate relationship

              By An experienced flutist

              from Corona, CA

              About Me Experienced

              Comments about Etude Model EFL-100 Student Flute:

              I've been playing flute for about 3 years now and been using this flute for 1 year. It wears out very quickly. The keys on the flute suck up a lot of moisture and makes the sound a bit sticky. I myself am allergic to Nickel Silver so DO NOT buy this flute if you are also allergic to nickel. After using flute stickers to hopefully stop the rashing on my bottom lip, it didn't help. The case also broke after 3 months, I got a new case afterwards. It does produce a good sound, but once in a while the keys stick and make a squeak (it's embarrassing having a squeak while playing a low note). I love the sound of the flute so this is a real love hate relationship with this flute. It's easy to play but the complications still make it ehhhh.

                      Do not let anyone fool you. These instruments are disposable. The keys bend easily and the pads are nothing but troublesome. Do yourself a favor and rent or buy a quality student level brand, such as Yamaha or Jupiter.
