What is a painter?

A painter is a flute that has a visible flaw that doesn’t affect the voice or the structural stability of the flute such as a filled crack or a dark glue line. These flutes are still perfectly good, but might not be the prettiest of the bunch, that’s why we call them painters! You can paint these flutes or wood burn to hide the flaw and no one will know the difference.

The Basic F# is a medium flute. 24 inches long with a 7/8 inch bore. The fingering holes are (from center to center) approximately 1 1/8 inch apart. The distance from the mouth end of the flute to the first finger hole is approximately 10 ¾ inches.

Painting Flute F# December 6, 2017
Reviewer: Fiona Reis from Emmendingen, Baden-Würtemberg Germany  
I unfortunattely had to go get my flute at the customs office. I was lucky, that there is one nearby, could have been possible that I have to take one two and a half hour drive the lady from the customs office told me, as the next one is in Frankfurt. Then I payed 28€ extra. The flute makes a nice and beautiful woody  sound, yet it takes a lot more breath power than the other flutes I have.  I had it over a month in coffee beans befor playing it, in hope that I could take away the smell of fresh varnisch the flute has. Now it smells mostly like coffe and I am much more happy with it, at the beginning the circumstances quite disappointed me. It is a painter flute, yet it has almost no flaw but a little krack in the wood no one but me notices. This was much better than I expekted, thumbs up for that!
Indeed a good flute I can be friends with when it gets less smelly =P

Very pleased with my flute December 5, 2017
Reviewer: Erin Garlock from Mentor on the Lake, OH United States  
I've found the little things that make this a "painter", but these were to be expected since this was advertised. Other than the minor things this is a very good instrument.

painter flute key of F# new April 13, 2016
Reviewer: HELEN SCHUELKE from SUN CITY WEST, AZ United States  
I am so happy to have this flute.  I have my radio station turned to Classical music. Before i found Stellar, i guess i just 'heard' the music, now i 'listen' and I can hear the flute!
A lot to aspire to; however keep those videos coming because that is the only way i'll be able to learn it.
I DID play "Happy Birthday" to my son on it--of course i'm the only one who knew exactly what it was!
i am glad that I got the painter flute, it is perfect for me as a beginner; and i know you are there if and when i am ready for a "premiere"!

4th Stellar Flute February 16, 2016
Reviewer: Ed Sheffield from Spanaway, WA United States  
I have purchased 3 kits  from Stellar and always a great experience.
this time I purchases a flute  'Basic' with a slight imperfection..a Sale flute..
it took quite a bit of looking to find the imperfection..and it was very slight.  
. As always,  quick turn around  fast shipping and the flute performs  great.
