This is a side blown flute with an easy-to-play harmonic scale that plays in 1 1/2 octaves.
The Deep Forest Flute presently comes in Natural, and 1 Starry Night left and is recommended for a medium to large hand. They range from 30 inches to around 34 inches.
This is a fund raiser to help bring food and household supplies to 266 children with disabilities. Each flute will be able to serve 5, 6 or 7 children.
Please keep in mind if you are buying from overseas, it cost $68 to ship and you will also have to pay customs fees too. Shipping in the USA is only $12.
As this is a fund raiser and the flute will not be able to be returned.
Some of my bamboo has curves from naturally seeking out the sun, this will not effect the quality of the sound.
The Deep Forest Flute is bound and comes with an awesome protective flute bag.

What you are saying...
It´s been around six months since I purchased the Deep Forest flute. The first thrill about the instrument is gone; only to be replaced by an even stronger second thrill. I believe now more than ever that your flutes have soul. It was like each flute I now own told me how it wanted to sound. With time they now begin to teach me different melodies too. It was with the Deep Forest flute that I first experienced what you describe as the flute is playing you, its like you don´t think, you don´t plan ahead, you just play and it all comes together just beautiful.

The Counselor and the Deep Forest Flute amaze me. The Counselor would be a perfect companion for any renaissance fair performer or historic reenactor. The Deep Forest flute has a rich and majestic sound…one of a bamboo forest and a family of Asian elephants walking in the misty sunlight. The time I spend with your flutes is among the best time of the day. You are a good man with a good heart and I´m convinced a sliver of that heart is in each of your flutes. To sum things up: Your flutes are marvelously delightful.

I bought one of the Deep Forest Flutes and I think it's absolutely wonderful. What initially attracted me to it was not just the sound, but also the fundraising opportunity. Everything about the flute is relaxing and enchanting; from the sound to the aroma. The look of the flute is a work of art. The quality of craftsmanship blew me away. Playing it was so uplifting I brought it to work and took mini-breaks with it every so often, (the church I work at allows for that). I think the scale is a modified Akebono because I can play the Japanese folk-song Sakura Sakura by just going up and down the scale.

I was blown away by your soulful creations and your passion to help with children in Central America. That is what made me choose your Deep Forest Flute. I found it beautiful to look at, meditative in tone, and the fact that it helps with your charity was wonderful. The flute has just arrived and I have to say, not only is it amazing but the bag that came with it is gorgeous. You have inspired me with your charity work and have me thinking of how I can help others when I graduate chiropractic school. Keep up the great work and God bless you and your family and those you help. Have a wonderful new year!

Hello Erik, I've been doodling with my Deep Forest Flute now for a couple of days and I just want to say this is now my new favorite flute, I've noticed that the degree of depth and richness in the notes has been enhanced and the melodic scale is very meditative with somewhat of an eastern sound to it, which is just what I was looking for. Thank you so much for bringing this into my life. May God bless you and your work.
