This Pre-Owned Sweetheart Cherry Eb Flute is in excellent condition. It was well cared for by its previous owner! It is a very lively Eb flute and is great fun to play. It's a beautiful instrument and is overall a great little flute! And for anyone who also plays the "Alto ( Eb ) Saxophone" - they'll especially like this flute for doubling, and be able to read the same music without transposing or changing any fingering.
