There are a few things to consider before buying the Hisonic Signature Series 2810N Closed 16-Hole Flute.
First off, although this flute sells at a great price, you get what you paid for. In other words, this is not a high-end, perfect pitch/sound quality instrument. A number of reviews indicate that it is difficult to play a high G & above with this flute. If your child is just starting out, this is not a big deal, but is something to be aware of.
Also, if this flute becomes damaged, it may be difficult to find a repair shop that is able and/or willing to fix it. Because it is a cheaper instrument and not a common brand, they may decline. However, if you purchase this flute through Amazon, you have the option of also purchasing a 2 or 3 Year Accident Protection Plan, which would take care of this issue.
The price for this flute is relatively low, but we will compare it to some others for perspective.
If you are wanting the lowest price possible, check out the Glory Closed Hole C Flute. This flute sells for under $100 and still has good sound quality. You can also get it in different colors. Buy beware, though, because the colors chip off easily.
On the other hand, you can get a Gemeinhardt 2SP Flute with Straight Headjoint for a few hundred dollars. It a beautiful, higher-end instrument for a beginner student. Gemeinhardt is also a well-known brand in the flute world.
