This is a fantastic starter musical instrument for my grandkids.. I gave this one to the 11 year old and he was ecstatic! It has great sound, and I am super happy that it comes with a storage bag and a cleaning tool! Now he can start to enjoy the beauty of music! I do wish it had come with some instructions on how to play (notes for holes etc. ) but I am sure we can find something on the net.. It is very well constructed and a beautiful blue color! I would recommend this to anyone who wants to get their child (or even an adult) a starter instrument!
