This flute is very rugged, and therefore also quite a bit heavier than most of the others. I drove over one with my car to see how rugged it was. Although the flute received some dents from the asphalt, it didn't crush or even crack, and still played just as well. This flute is typically constructed out of Poplar. Coloration of poplar varies, but is typically an off-white with green coloration mixed in. Some variations have brilliant pinks, purples, blacks, and even blues. However, many of these colors will change with time. See the custom flute section for some variations. Poplar with such unusual coloration is available upon request for additional charge and subject to availability.

This flute has a very nice voice. I typically give this instrument a somewhat   "airy"   yet very   "robust"   sound quality which matches the appearance of the instrument. Although that is the preferred voicing for this particular flute, other voicings are available upon request. Other woods are also available for an additional charge. A 10-minute recording of me playing a flute of the same series, wood, and in the same key is available for an additional fee of $10. The recording is available on CD or cassette tape. If interested, please ask for it when you place your order.
