Yamaha Flute For Beginner

February 12, 2019

I highly recommend the Yamaha 221 Flute.  Mine is a made in Japan model and I have been impressed with the quality of my flute for years! It is extremely reliable and sounds beautiful.  For my needs, having a C foot flute has been perfect.  I have never found the need to upgrade to a B foot or closed tone holes

Unfortunately, Yamaha doesn't make the 221 model any more...The closest thing to this model is the new 222.  While they are similar, I highly recommend the 221 because I feel that the tone is much richer.  Perhaps the metal was a higher quality many years back.  I have tried many of my students' 222 flutes and still prefer my 221 much more.  


If you are interested in purchasing a great student flute, I would highly recommend purchasing a used Yamaha 221 and then taking it to a reputable repairman to have it adjusted to a sufficient playing quality.  You can find them for an inexpensive price on eBay.  Good luck!
