Renting a flute can be a great way to enter the world of music making. And there are many options on the internet for renting.

We have researched and used many different brands of flutes in our school music programs. We have learned the hard way that some "brands" will never play properly - and in fact - many repairmen won't even touch them because parts are not available.

If you find a price that seems too good to be true, it probably is. And just because the flute is for a beginning student doesn't mean they can learn on an inferior instrument with a fuzzy tone, sticky keys, leaking air and breaking parts.

Features to look for include:

* Silver plated headjoint and body
* Plateau keys
* Wider ribbed construction
* Reinforced post base
* Top adjustment screws
* Stainless steel springs
* Offset G
* C foot
* Available in nickel plated finish
* Molded case
