Revolutionising the beginner woodwind market, Nuvo have created a fleet of instruments perfect for beginners in every way. Made from a combination of durable plastic and silicone, each instrument is ultra-lightweight and couldn't be easier to clean - simply rinse or bathe with soapy water, dry thoroughly and they're good to go! The student flute has all the keywork and sounds just like a regular silver flute, where it differs is it's astonishingly low weight. Coming in at just 310g, that's almost half the weight of a standard flute! It is the perfect starter flute, or great if you are looking for a good sounding lightweight alternative to your regular flute. Everything on the Student flute is designed to give the beginner an easier playing experience, benefitting both player and teachers alike. From the 'Firstnote' lip-plate, to the durable silicone pads it the ideal instrument for inspiring young players in the classroom and at home.
Standard head joint and C-foot joint
A perfect step-up, the Student flute features both a standard full-length head joint and a C-foot joint. Both help replicate the size and range of a standard flute, whilst maintaining the brilliant features and lightweight abilities of a Nuvo instrument.
The Student flute features the NUVO Firstnote lip plate which can be used in the early lessons while the student is learning posture, fingering and playing simple tunes. When ready, the Firstnote can be replaced by the regular lip plate which is also included.
Easy to clean
Nuvo instruments are easy to clean and sanitise. For a quick clean, simply spray with an appropriate woodwind disinfectant, leave for a 20 seconds or more then wipe with a dry cloth. When your instrument needs a deeper clean you can bathe it in warm soapy water and leave to dry on a towel. This will remove a build up of dirt or grime in any part of the instrument and get rid of any unwanted bacteria without the need to take it apart or for expensive cleaning equipment.
Built to last
Made from durable plastic and silicone, Nuvo instruments are built to last. Nuvo actively encourages players to pass on their instrument to another beginner once they have moved on to their next instrument, so if looked after well, your instrument could last you through many new players! Maintenance is also simple, with readily available spare parts and simple instructions for fitting and repair.
The Student flute may have the same key-system and be a similar size to a standard silver flute, however the ultra lightweight construction allows it to be held and played by younger musicians with ease. Coming in at just 310g it is almost half the weight of a standard silver flute!
Fun for all ages
The Nuvo Student flute isn't limited to just the classroom. Although it is the perfect instrument for an aspiring flautist, or for a classroom of young musicians, it can be enjoyed by anyone. Whether you were once a flautist and would like to rekindle your passion without breaking the bank, would like a fun and lightweight alternative/spare, or just want to start something new, the Student flute is ready to inspire.
Case & accessories
A smart, sturdy carry case holds everything you need for your Student flute. This includes the standard and 'Firstnote' lip-plates, cleaning cloth & rod, lip-plate remover, O-ring grease and instruction booklet.
