The model 3 flute with a B footjoint offers the specifications many teachers recommend for a student ready to purchase their first step-up flute. With open tone holes, referred to as a French key mechanism, and a B footjoint, the model 3B flute is one of the most popular step-up flutes offered today. The B footjoint creates a longer tube allowing a greater resonance in the flute, as well as providing advancing flutists opportunities to utilize alternate fingerings for greater facility in the upper register.
