“From the start, when it was the instrument of the wood-god Pan, the flute has been associated with pure (some might say impure) energy. Its sound releases something naturally untamed, as if a squirrel were let loose in a church.”
“Flute music is love music from the heart. It must not stop, lest the pulsing of the heart be broken.”

Well it’s time again to answer a few of those questions that you folks over and over……never ask. A number of you have never asked… “Why do some flutes have no price, stating instead, ‘Email for price?’” Good question. I sell flutes to people all over the planet. Some folks want to pay for their flutes with goats, baseball cards, rocks, lumber, E-checks, and the ever popular 3rd world bank draft. So until all the dust settles, one way or another, I have to temporarily suspend the potential sale of the flute to someone else. Another reason for doing so is that flutes occasionally go to art exhibits. There is no sale pending, but it’s a little vacation for the flute, and I get to drink free wine, and eat little cheese squares with toothpicks.

Nice post, however you didn’t talk about the flutes pictured. They look great!
I have a couple rocks… Can I get a flute?
Rich, while I appreciate your efforts to get the recession train moving, it’s not very nice to tempt a poor single girl on a budget with a sale!! I do NOT need another flute….I do NOT need another flute…. (BTW, now that I’ve spent some quality time with my beautiful spalted maple raven flute, I have come to appreciate it more and more! Although I still contend yours is a dangerous website, I’m very happy to have stumbled across it, and very happy to have acquired one of your flutes!) Happy New Year! -Diane
