Hi everyone, I am making a bunch of souvenir flutes for the Austin Celtic Festival this November. I want to give away 3 of them to experienced players in exchange for your opinion. What I am going for is something that is easy to get a sound (as in for a beginner) and it is reasonably in tune. I am not going to spend a lot of time on each one, but they should be reasonably playable. They are made out of colorful PVC tube in the key of G or D. They have a huge embouchure hole and a very sharp edge. Since I don't play very well (yet) I am looking for help in this.

If you want, one, I do need you to pay shipping, which is $10 to the US. If you are outside the US, then shipping is a little more. Let me know where you are and I will look it up. My zip code is 78660. I use USPS because they are the least expensive. (I apologize for that, I just don't have the scratch or I would do it)

Name your color. Red, blue, green, black, yellow, orange, and purple. Specify whether you want a D or a G. (the Gs are better IMHO). Send me a PM or post here. I will need your email address to send you a PayPal invoice and your shipping address. You don't need to "join" paypal or anything, it'd just how I accept cards and such. I will also PM my email address so that you can respond.

Or, if you think this is a stupid idea or out of bounds, I would like to know about that as well.
