Hella expensive flutes

Had to google those flutes and DANG they're expensive. Guess this guy knew what to look for

Professional Instruments

Most instruments owned by professionals and high-level students are going to be several thousand or tens of thousands of dollars if not much more. The expectations of instruments in a conservatory is very high.

Hopefully this student has instrument insurance. Although even if they get the money back it won't replace the time (maybe years) they would have spent learning the particularities of that one flute.
