The JP011CH is a starter instrument for young players wanting to pick up the flute for the very first time. Supplied with curved and straight head joints, it provides both short and long reaches for growing players, and allows them to progress with ease, saving the expense of purchasing a straight headed flute while learning.
The entire instrument - headjoint, footjoint and keywork – are all silver plated, improving the tone of the instrument and giving it an appealing shine. Durable keywork provides comfort for shaky hands.
Having a curved headjoint is incredibly important for younger players. The curvature allows players with shorter arms to reach the full keywork with ease, thus avoiding poor posture and encouraging good technique
A split E mechanism is provided, which allows players to reach the higher registers of the instrument with greater ease, encouraging practice and helping a younger player produce more accurate sounds from quite early on.
Furthermore, an offset G mechanism is built in. Being positioned on a separate rod means that the keys are easier to play and offer a more natural positioning of the hands. Furthermore the design means that the keys are less susceptible to damage when disassembling the instruments or putting them back together – perfect for notice, nervous hands!
Due to the lack of more advanced keywork such as the trill keys (which are not needed until the higher grades), these instruments are lightweight, allowing younger players with less arm strength to hold the flute upright for extended periods of time with ease. This encourages the best posture – a habit which when learnt is never forgotten.
The flute is supplied as an entire outfit with semi-hard case, cleaning rod and cloth. The moulded case with purpose built internal compartments provide soft cushioned protection for your instrument and the exterior of the case is equipped with a handy side pocket – perfect for those extra accessories. Complete with shoulder strap, this makes it a convenient package to transport to and from school or orchestral practices.
It is in all of these ways that the JP011 rivals its competitors within the market. A fond favourite within the musical education sector, this is one of our most popular starter instruments, boasting simplicity and ease of use alongside warm tones. If you are looking to give a novice younger player a head start in the world of flute playing, this is the instrument for you.
