It was a sad, sad evening last week.  Had to say goodbye to Mercy, my old Soul, front and center in the picture.  She had been so many places and experienced so many things over the past 15+ years.  Needless to say I didn’t get much work done for a while…    She was always by my side. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- A couple of very nice ‘clear’ cedar flutes are now posted.  Clear cedar has no knots in it, just straight, lightweight grain.  One is a traditional roundbore, E4, and the other is a SAC-less E4 Verdi (A432) that is great for travel.  Lovely, mellow voices, trypical of the soft cedars. I also have a stunning curly/figured Black Walnut C4, a D4 Walnut birdbeak, and a B3 in curly Maple that are very close to being finished.  The flute bodies are actually finished, but the blocks aren’t, not quite yet.  Check back on those or just email me to nudge me.  :-) HOW THIS WORKS:  If you see a flute you love, email me at the addy below.  You’ll get automatic ‘dibs’ for 24 hours while you mull it over.  The prices shown INCLUDES shipping charges, and each flute comes in a fleece bag with an instruction sheet.  I ship USPS Priority Mail; if you need other services, I’ll need to quote that shipper’s pricing in advance.  Flutes take wing within 1-3 days of ordering, depending on the day of the week and if I find something to tweak upon final inspection. Those that already know the quality of flute I produce know they are hissless and take very little breath to play.  My bass flutes have compromised playing holes that more easily fit average hands.  If I release a flute, I’d be honored to record with it…all that to say I stand firmly behind each one of my singing stick creations.   :-)
