Flutes! Flutes! Flutes!

by Nikki

Hello Music and Arts!

Here at your local ProShop, we carry a ton of different step-up flutes! What does step-up mean in the world of flutes? I'm so glad you asked! There is a couple of requirements to be considered a step-up flute.

The flute must be an open hole flute. What?! Holes in my flutes? No way, you're crazy. Trust me on this one, the open hole flutes are way more awesome than closed hole flutes because the flute will produce a more vibrant sound.

Also, the flute will have a low B-foot. Is that like Big Foot? Nope. No it's not. It's an extra key down at the end of the flute that helps you hit a low B, thus the name.

Finally, the flute will have some sort of solid silver on it. An intermediate level flute will have a solid silver head joint, and a professional level flute will have a solid silver head joint and body. The solid silver produces richer tones with more overtones!

Now for what you've been waiting for! A list of flute we have in stock 24/7.
