Is this a good deal or bad deal? (CANADIAN)
Looks in pretty good condition? If you guys suggest me to buy, what should I actually do with it before/after I buy? Check-up? I don't know how to buy used flutes.

Seems legit. Find a specialist in brass instruments in your area, and get a check up / clean up + polish of the instrument.

Doesn't seem in bad shape. I think these kind of flutes are worth more than 1,000$. I do not recommand buying these kind of instruments on-line until you had the occasion to see the shape of the keys and the finish. If you are really interested, ask for a genuine video clip and close-up pics.

At first glance, it is worth the price.

No problem. I'm a saxophone player though, but both instruments have similarities so...

Glad I could help.

Yamaha flutes are good flutes. Unless the previous owner has done something really terrible to it (which I can't really get a good look at it from those pictures), it's a good buy for $560 CAN.

So, I'd buy it and get it checked out.

Yamaha makes really great quality wind instruments.

My saxophone is a YAS-82Z and it sounds like heaven.

Yeah, my mom owns a music store that stocks Yamaha instruments. Lots of Yamaha instruments. They're quality.

I play flute, and seeing the pics, and the price, I say go for it.

The price is amazing, and its in great condition.. Just make sure you have it looked at.

Its a very fine instrument, I wouldn't mind it tbh.

Good luck!
I can do it!

And so can you!
