My birthday was a few weeks back and TonyP ordered a beautiful Native American-type flute from Erik the Flutemaker. It arrived Tuesday and it's even nicer than I'd dreamed it would be.
I haven't taken a picture of it yet but it's one of the dark, carved ones. The motif is the night sky and the mottled surface of the flute looks like a star field.
The instrument has a good weight and feels wonderful in my hands. It is very easy to play - as long as you just gently breath into it!
As soon as I have pics I will post them!
