Measuring Your Hands

[ click here to close window and return to previous page ]

Measure from the outside of the thumb to the outside of the fifth finger.

To determine which model flute (standard or small-handed):

  1. Stretch your fingers out as far as is comfortable.
  2. Measure the distance between thumb and fifth finger (as shown).
  3. If this distance is less than 7.5 inches (19cm), a small-handed flute is recommended.
