8 year old DS has been learning the flute for just over a year and a half now and we would like to buy him his own for his birthday - can anyone give me some pointers as to what to buy? Would we be better getting a better quality one second hand or a cheaper new one? Thanks

This web site specialises in flutes, and it seems reliable, and has plenty of sensible advice:

Our DS played alto saxophone, and started with a Yamaha 'student' model. If you can purchase via the school, it MAY be possible to get a preferential price, and not have to pay VAT.
