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).
