Great looking flutes! I like the idea of alternative woods.


Thanks! Yes, in the face of the big changes happening as a result of the CITIES regulations, developing alternative materials has a strong attraction. The resin-stabilized maple has the natural beauty of wood, it feels like wood and yet has many other attractive qualities such as being non-shrinking, waterproof and highly resistant to other environmental factors. Plus, it has the dye in the resin itself, so that wood is actually brown at a cellular level, not just on the surface!

That's cool, thanks for the details. And I've always liked lighter colored woods for flutes and pipes.
