Received the bamboo flute walking stick with the Marine Corps emblem today. I couldn't be happier. You did a beautiful and excellent job on it. Thank you very much.
Hi Linda -
Wow, ya done good! I'm very impressed! Not only is it a solid, great looking walking cane, (which I unfortunately need these days), but it's a well-tuned and responsive flute, (concert pitch, no less).
I've played Irish flute and whistle for years, and have owned some killer flutes. This is, of course, just a cylindrical bamboo flute, and has the inherent limitations. But dollar-for-dollar, it's amazing! I'll be showing it off, and already have my nephew interested in a hiking-stick flute. I'll also leave good feedback on eBay and your website. Kudos to you guys!
My god, this is a beautiful instrument! And the burnt finish color is just as I had pictured; perfect. And it is louder than I had imagined, I love it! The tone is strong and rich. Thank you two so very much, I am truly enjoying this first hour I've been playing around with it. I think I will most definitely get attached to this one for years to come. Thank you for being so cooperative with my request and at the incredible speed that it arrived.
Again, thank you immensely,
Just received the beautiful walking stick monopod flute. Thank you for a wonderful instrument with the painted images and inscription. I hope to own this for many years and get plenty of enjoyment while practising on the flute. The uniqueness will certainly keep me motivated to have it readily available at all times. Best wishes to you and Nick for the coming season.
My son Conor and I greatly enjoyed meeting you yesterday at the street fair, and thanks to you I am now able to progress on my new (first) transverse flute using the techniques you demonstrated. Now that I am no longer dependent on "whistle" flutes, a whole new world of instruments is open to me, and I look forward to building a larger flute collection.
My new walking stick arrived yesterday — - it's 'right on ...' You...do indeed make a very high quality walking stick that I'll certainly put to good use on my numerous 'dog-walking' ventures.
Thanks again ...
Hooray! The flute arrived today. Thanks and well done. It surpassed my expectations; the photos in the website do not do any justice. I did not expect the flute to be so beautiful, and it is just right, the width of it, the length and the shape of it. And most important of all,your painting on it is just perfect.
Thanks and I wish you all continuing success,
I got my flutes today, and wow, are they absolutely lovely! What a beautiful finish! Cute idea with the compass on top too! A fine creative touch! The packaging is superb as well, you take such care with details all around! Thanks for using tubes; it'll come in handy when I wrap these for Christmas.
These are so pretty, and the tone is really really pleasant as well…the two I'm giving away are going to be a definite hit at Christmas time for sure :)
I can't wait to walk with it with my puppies! (I chose the thicker one in case I have to beat off coyotes lunging after my pups! One did one time lunge after my little gal here, but we were on her before it wuz... *whew*!
The post man commented on em as well, by the way, thought they were pretty keen idea :)

Nick, Just wanted to tell you that my dad LOVED his walking cane flute...what a great present for the 90 year old who has everything!
My brother, who is a harmonica player, has been serenading him until he learns some songs himself. Although it arrived surprisingly early, no matter how much I beg him, he is adamant that he won't take it out and about to show it off until his actual birthday on October 24th...he promises that he is enjoying it in his apartment until then...
Thanks again for a lightning quick response!
I just purchased an inked bamboo flute in E from you at the Philadelphia Folk Festival, and I wanted to let you know that it is a fantastic instrument with a great tone and response. I have about a dozen bamboo flutes from various makers, and this one is by far the best. Thank you!
