I first saw your walking flute last December in Negril, Jamaica (the Caribbean)! A young man from Canada was playing it at a place called Rick's Cafe. This is a place where many people (60 to 70 a night) would gather to see the sun set, buy drinks, and watch people dive off a short cliff to the ocean.
Well, that man played your flute beautifully, and easily became the center of attention that afternoon. He had all of us singing Christmas carols, and even Jamaican reggae. Everyone! From the waiters working there, to some tourists who only knew the Japanese words to the music.
My dog chewed up a very special bamboo flute of mine a few weeks ago. I had purchased it at the Maryland Renaissance Festival about 15 years ago, and it really meant a lot to me. I immediately began searching for a replacement, and Google pointed me to you folks. Today I received my flute, and was amazed at the quality of finish and clarity of tone for such an inexpensive instrument. I really appreciate your craftsmanship, and I look forward to trying some of your other offerings in the future (particularly the walking stick flute).
I spoke with a very nice flute maker today on the phone — I think his name was Nick? — at your shop about ordering a couple more flutes. I'll call you folks tomorrow or you call us.
Thank you again ever so much,
Bill, Cathy, and Darlene

The E flute is just a little too big for me for right now, but I am sure that when I get used to playing the side-blown flutes, I will have no problems in using my pinky finger for the bottom hole.
Not bragging, but I can already play up and down the scales pretty good (according to me)!
Just had to let you all know how pleased we all are! Thanks!
We got the two flutes today. Your walking stick and the two flutes have caused quite a disturbance in our little world. Momma (that's my pet name for my wife, Cathy), the other "hobo," and our roommate Darlene, sure do love them. A friend that plays side-blown flutes really well played on the walking stick for about 2 hours (the G flute). Then at lunch time, the postman came by with the two smaller flutes. Well, needless to say, your flutes have made our day.
I loved the walking stick flute as soon as I saw it... and was so excited when it arrived. When I opened it, I found that it had cracked in the middle. I was very disappointed and immediately called the website. I was treated so nicely and was assured that a replacement would be sent immediately. I received the replacement in just a few days and it was "perfect"...beautiful...and sounded heavenly. I love my flute and will be enjoying it for many years to come....All business people should take a lesson from you gays on the handling of customers' complaints. You are "TOPS" in my book!
I just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with my flute. It's been years since I've played, and it's been a delight to pick up something so simple yet beautiful in its appearance and sound. My son and husband are amazed daily by the rich tones I'm able to produce with it.
We received our walking sticks today. They are just right! And to boot, they are nicely crafted. We do a lot of hiking on rocky trails and the bamboo stick with its stoppered bottom provides just the right traction. We used our first set of such sticks for at least six years. I'm sure we'll get years of use from these, too. Thanks so much for the sturdy and reasonably priced walking sticks.
It has been my practice to play "Georgia on my Mind" on a flute during my travels; it happens to be one I can play well, and I'm from Georgia. I may have been the first to play this song at Machu Picchu, on your flute.
Thanks for this item that I will continue to use and treasure.
I thought you might like the attached pictures. They were taken on the Inca Trail in Peru hiking to Machu Picchu. The walking stick/flute was great! I shortened it by about 4" to suit me, inset a length of wooden dowel into the end and screwed in a smaller rubber tip. The grip is bicycle handlebar tape. It was an essential item of gear on the trip, and worked as a hiking stick as well as the trekking poles others used.
