Elle ne joue pas de flûte non plus

I thought instruments were ‘joue de la’ (in this case flûte) - is there a reason the ‘la’ has fallen off in this example?

This question relates to:
French lesson "Ne ... pas non plus = Not ... either (negation)"

The article is gone due to the negation.

This is true for pretty much everything, not just musical instruments.
