My husband bought me a collectors flute in cherry and walnut (in the key of F) back in February for my birthday. I have been practicing as much as I can and as often as I can. I finally have most of the base work down and am starting to be more creative with my music. Playing gives me a chance to relax and be creative at the same time. It is amazing how easy this instrument is to play. I just wanted to commend you on your fine craftsmanship. My flute is not only visually pleasing but also emits a sound that is as soothing as a summer breeze gently passing through the forrest. Thank you for creating such a wonderful instrument and for making it accessible to the public. It is a true treasure to own such a wonderful creation and will become a treasured family heirloom. Thanks again for the fine craftsmanship and for taking the time and pride in your work to create something so beautiful.
