I've had my beloved 3SHB for 13 years. It was ridiculously affordable as my single mother who, at the time couldn't afford much of anything, was still able to finance one and replace my 20 $ pawn shop find. It saw me through high school, university and I'm currently playing it in a community band. I did wish all those years ago I chose 33SB instead because my friend's (bought at the same time) had much better sound quality than mine. Still, the sound is lovely.

However, I have found that it's lowest register doesn't play as well as other brands. So I can't play the lowest 3 notes on my flute without considerable hard work. (Although it's only recently I've even needed to try.) Over the past 13 years I've also had springs break, a screw break, and the key mechanism fall off and need to be resoldered. Keep in mind though this is years of wear and tear and some serious loving as it's my main hobby- I think all but the resoldering is perfectly typical for such usage.

In the end this was the perfect intermediate flute for me. It was affordable, it challenged me, it sounds amazing. But I would recommend stepping up to an entirely silver model over the 3SHB (because it really does make a difference and the price isn't THAT much more).

Great flute!

This flute is a huge step up from my high school and after college flutes. If I would have had this in school, I would have practiced a lot more!

Best flute I've ever owned

My parents bought this for me as a step up after playing a beginner level flute for 3 years. This flute is seriously amazing and I couldn't ask for anything better. I've been through 2 orchestras and 2 bands with it, so it's served me well for the past 2 years. I love my tone quality and resonance on it and a lot of people are surprised to find out that it's a Gemeinhardt. Gemeinhardt is my trusted and favorite brand of flute. I look forward to investing in a professional level flute from Gemeinhardt if my dream of playing professionally someday comes true.

I LOVE IT SOOOOOO MUCH!!!!!! its made of silver!!!!!!

The 3shb is a wonderful step up flute for any flutist who desires a flute with beautiful sound. It came in a nice hard plastic case which was covered in a nylon case cover. It also came with a plastic cleaning rod, a polishing mitt, and hole plugs. The polishing mitt was quite a welcome surprise and I found playing the flute to be a huge step up from my earlier 2sp. I fully recommend this to anyone.
