Without question this would be our top recommendation for a beginning student.  The "Progressive" style headjoint on the Armstrong 104 offers players crisp response and ease of playing throughout all registers. The offset G key follows the natural contour of students hands and makes playing more comfortable. Armstrong's signature CNC key cups ensure that pads will seat perfectly flat which prevents air leaks. Bottom adjusting screws provide a sleeker, more professional look. Built in Elkhart, Indiana, the Armstrong 104 flute is designed to last and provide a superb playing experience for students.

The combination of durability, sound and build quality, low cost of maintenance, and great resale value make this the best student flute value in the United States in our opinion.  Backed by Conn-Selmer's 5 Year Warranty, built in the USA, and we have the best price in the country.  Very nice.


How does this Armstrong compare to the Strauss at $189?

  • Key cups that are CNC cut instead of die cast are a big deal.  The perfection of CNC allows the pad to sit perfectly level inside the cup, preventing premature wear on the pad and allowing predictable, accurate playing from your beginning student.  You save on repairs, they play better in the holiday concert.
  • The "progressive" headjoint on the Armstrong is a big deal.  Again, precision manufacturing in the USA and the experience of Armstrong combine for a crisp, sweet tone that teachers listen for, easier playing, and more accurate pitch from your young student.  
  • Armstrong is division of Conn-Selmer, and their 5 Year Warranty is a big deal.  It shows how confident they are that this flute is made right and will last.  The instrument holds its value better as a result.  You have a flute that will last into high school and beyond if the student continues, and a flute that will have a better resale value on the used market if they don't.
