Closed Hole Flute with Silver Plated Headjoint, Body & Keys, C foot, and Offset G. Considered a beginner/student flute. 

Yamaha student flutes are great instruments, often getting a better sound than intermediate model flutes made by their competitors. If I were to recommend a beginner flute model, a Yamaha 200 series flute would be it. The model 221 and 200AD (Yamaha Advantage Series) are current models, both frequently being offered as rental flutes by musical instrument stores. These currently sell new for between $800 and $900. 

Yamaha 221 v. Yamaha 200AD

I am frequently asked, "What is the difference between the model 221 and the model 200AD?" And my answer: "There is no difference at all." They are the same flute just with a different name and in a different case. Unlike the 221, the 200AD is only sold by select retailers who work regularly with Yamaha- that is the only distinction. The two models have identical specs and play with the same feel and sound. All parts are interchangeable as well.

No. 1- Yamaha 221- $395 - Serial No. 874224

This flute is in great cosmetic condition with only light surface wear. As with all our flutes, it has recently been serviced and play tested to ensure quality! Comes with case and cleaning rod. A great flute for a beginner player!
