Subject: RE: Jacob's Wooden Flutes
Hi Nathalie -- here's a link to Odell Borg's High Spirits Flutes, makers of high quality Native American style instruments. Don't know what "genre" of flute is your preference, but if you click on the model names you can hear these instruments -- I think they are fantastic. I just bought a nearly-new Kestrel at a great price from an American friend of mine, it should be arriving in a few days, and I can hardly wait!
I've been learning to play the penny whistle over the last few weeks, using it to help me with the cravings as I'm trying to quit smoking (again). Aug 27 -- the New Moon -- is my target date for throwing the cigarettes away completely, and I sure hope the Kestrel arrives by then! If I could learn to play it like the demos at the site I gave you, it'll sure beat the sound of my cheap little penny whistle!
Uncle Jaque, thank you so much for all your info about the "care and feeding" of a wooden flute. I'm copying your posts out now -- should prove very useful!
