This is a new flute with a small Finish Blemish, it does not effect the playing in any way.
Stellar Basic flutes are Native American style flutes that are tuned to the pentatonic minor scale and made out of high quality, dark, western red cedar. They feature a low profile block which is simple and functional. There is no difference in the quality of the voice or the tuning between the Basic and the Standard, these are concert quality flutes. The Basic flutes are undecorated, feature a low profile block, and only come in western red cedar.
This is a large flute and not all people can comfortable play a flute this long so see the chart below.
I like Stellar flutes, they are fun to play, easy to get a great tone and have a fantastic finish. Very smooth, I do not know how they do it! They are sealed inside and outside with 4 coats of oil based Polyurethane and are guaranteed against cracking.
This is a great flute for a beginner who does not want to invest in a more expensive flute or for a collector who is trying to affordably expand their flute collection. This versatile flute is lightweight enough to take hiking, and its low profile block makes it easy to travel with. It is also a great flute for someone who wants to add their own decoration.
All Stellar flutes come with an instruction booklet.
An excellent DVD that includes instructions on how to play the flute and more is available as an option as well as a Stellar bag with shoulder strap.
