I received the flute this morning and "WOW" was all I said. Once I played the flute it made me even more amazed at how good the sound quality was. I have bought other flutes from different makers but I have to say that yours is the loudest and has the best sound. I will be back to order another flute from you. At first I was hesitant to order because of the price. I have never paid that much for a flute before but I know now that you get what you pay for.
