"Just back from Costa Rica. I took a nose dive down a flight of cement stairs with the flute carrier. My right knee and elbow skinned up but the flutes were just fine in the carrier. Someone also stepped on the carrier and of course it was stuffed into the overhead bin on the airplane and at least once someone tried to crush it with their carry on. Flutes traveled just fine. Thank you very much."

My first flute from the Oregon Flute Store arrived today, a black bamboo flute in E by James Galliland. It plays with beautiful overtones and a wonderful, lively breath. It easily reaches two notes above the octave, bright and true. It doesn't seem to get as wet as soon as my hardwood flutes. I also have a hardwood E flute and while I love its tone this bamboo flute really moves me. It's a bit quieter and a bit softer and it invites the ear in to listen. This flute is also so very beautiful to look at, and it weighs next to nothing.

Thank you so much for all your help and guidance, for packing and shipping this flute with such care, and for giving artisans like James Gilliland the best possible kind of place to bring their gifts to the public.
