hi, my dad has been playing Irish flute for a very long time. He lives in Belgium and would like to travel to England or Ireland to buy himself a nice new Irish flute. Have you any recommendations on where to go?

My understanding, from several young Irish flautists (dang. don't get many chances to use that word, hope I spelled it correctly) is that the best wooden flutes for use in Irish music are at present made mostly by artisans in the US. Before you make travel plans, it might be wise to do some web surfing.

Thanks, Paddymac! If you know of any excellent artisans or sites in particular, I'd be interested.

I have just got an Ormiston flute, he is based up in Scotland. And a finer lovely looking instrument you couldn't ask for more. I love it. George is a lovely fella to speak to too, can talk for ever but really is a nice man. And of course he prefers it if people buy off him...

Can't do a clickety thing but here's his web address...

(quite a few of my friends have them too and they love theirs. beautiful sounds too!)

If you go HERE and page down a ways, theres a section on "Flutes" that will give you quite a few choices.

On that's in the list is Hamilton's Flutes which, I believe, is run by Hammie Hamilton, well known player(?). Sorry, I've never seen or heard one of his flutes - that I know of; but he is well known as a composer of "trad-style" Irish tunes.

The Music Room in Cleckheaton, UK, offers a tuneable Gael D whistle made in Maple-wood for £24.99 Try www.the-music-room.com They are very helpful and knowledgable, and were happy to replace the first low D whistle I bought (by post), when I found it difficult to play.

Hi An,

To support Ela's comment on Ormiston flutes - I've been playing one for about seven years and they are superb.

A visit to George's workshop is allpert of the fun of buying one of his flutes. He is a genuinely nice guy and fine flautist
