I bought one of your walking stick flutes 10 or 12 years ago and have walked hundreds of miles through our woods with it and hope to take it up Kilimanjaro and into the Andes. I compliment you on your craftsmanship. It has a nice sound, but I use it more as a walking stick than as an instrument, and it holds up great. The compass has kept my dogs and I from getting lost many times. I’m a Baroque recorder player rather than a flutist, but I do intend on learning to play some simpler tunes on the walking stick before too long.
