Hello sax "heads". Two days ago i ordered this flute,although i play the alto sax (i practice alto with a tutor for the last 6 months,which means i am still a freshman),because i like so much classical music along with jazz!

Does anybody know if this flute is in a standard way acceptable as an instrument?
Well sometimes i get disappointed with sax,because it's a long way to achieve a good tone.Well i only play 6 months,but i was wondering if i could manage something better on flute (without a tutor).

My teacher said that sax and flute are on the same level of difficulty.He said that the clarinet is the hardest woodwind.

I can't tell from the website but it looks like a standard Asian student flute. Make sure it is good adjustment and ready to play and you should be OK. They sell in the US for about $150-200US. Have a flute player try it to make sure it is working well.

Do you believe i can blow without a tutor?

You will need at least a basic instruction. First practice blowing on a beer bottle until you get a sound. Same idea for the flute head.

Want instant good tone? Buy a piano. :twisted:

If your teacher tells you that sax and flute are similarly difficult, why start over on another instrument? You need to commit to something.

Yes but sax hasn't classical repertoire...flute has a lot.That's my main idea.
