Came very late last night. Have played it for about 30 minutes today. This is physically a beautiful flute, but more important it's easy to play and sounds tremendous. This was a replacement for my first flute, a popular, commercially made flute that I though sounded nice but almost turned me off because of its narrow abilities. Granted I'm a little better now, but after playing your flute I can see that many of my early challenges were not mine, but the flutes. Bottom line is I can't tell you how pleased I am with your flute. If I was still stuck in the 60's I would say far freakin' out, but I will leave it with a comment my 14 year old niece made - awesome!
