Buying a new flute is a very important decision, especially considering the price range of upper-level flutes. It is important to understand that flutes that work well for some students may or may not work as well for others. Flutes have certain attributes, such as the head joint, lip plate, wall-thickness, and facility of the key movement that need to be considered and evaluated per student. The particular physiology of the student must also be taken into consideration.
