An entry-level model worth listening to

Thomann FL-1000 CE Flute seen from the side

A good beginner's flute is characterised on the one hand by a large dynamic range of sound possibilities and on the other hand by the fact that it rests comfortably in the hands of the respective player. The FL-1000CE from Thomann meets these criteria and is currently one of the most affordable flutes on the market. This flute impresses thanks to its good intonation in all registers, an easy response, and a centered sound. The headjoint, the body, and the mechanism are made of silver-plated nickel silver and are solidly manufactured. With this model, which has been available since 1999, Thomann offers a flute with an E-mechanism and an offset G. The scope of delivery includes a case and a cleaning rod.

For your first notes on the flute

Thanks to its good intonation in all registers and solid manufacturing quality, the FL-1000CE is a perfect instrument for beginners. A fact worthy of mention is that the notes in the low registers don't drop in intonation and respond superbly. The notes in the third octave also intonate very steadily, so that it doesn't require excessive rotary adjustment. Italian Pisoni pads and the thickly-applied silver plating ensure a long-lasting life for your new conquest. The flute is equipped with closed keys, which offer significantly greater comfort compared to open holes, as the fingers can lay more flexibly on the keys - an important condition for beginners to learn successfully.

A great start

A flute should be designed in a manner that enables well-intonated and dynamic playing in all registers. The intonation possibilities shouldn’t be too extensive, but they should not be too limited either. If you want to opt for the flute – whether as a beginner or coming from another instrument – the FL-1000CE’s convincing price-performance ratio makes it a good choice. Many flute teachers value this flute as a good student instrument thanks to its excellent playing and sound characteristics. The FL-1000CE is therefore played in many music classes, brass bands, and music clubs. And on top of that, it is suitable as an affordable backup instrument for saxophonists or clarinettists.

About Thomann wind instruments

Thomann-brand instruments, which are exclusively built by renowned manufacturers, now constitute a large part of Thomann’s product range alongside numerous big-name brands. With unbeatable price-performance ratios, Thomann wind instruments are the obvious first choice for students and beginners – and others too. The technical features and uncompromising sound quality they offer are usually reserved for much more expensive instruments found in the professional market segment.

From a beginner's model to an open-air instrument

Until fairly recently, it was still hard to find a beginner’s flute that was both good AND affordable – but those days are thankfully over. Thanks to their pleasant playing and sound features and their reasonable price, Thomann’s flutes are becoming more and more popular, having also become serious competition for other manufacturers. With the FL-1000CE you get a solid entry-level model that you can use in many musical applications. This flute is ideal for learning the instrument and on top of that, it can also serve as a second instrument during bad weather situations at open-air gigs.

good choise for a new fluter
nice warm sound
quick responding and light keys
decent all around quality (allthough chinese)
very good value for money

Should have metal hinges at the back of the case. The plastic outer material doesn't look like a reliable joint.

Habe diese Modell nach langem ihn und her gekauft. Ansprache und Tonumfang ist kaum ein Unterschied zu höherwertigerer Querflöten. Hab sie extra von meiner Schwester testen lassen, die schon viele Jahre Unterricht gibt.

Urteilt: Für Anfänger und Fortgeschrittene klare kauf Empfehlung.
