Anyone got or tried one of these? Who makes them - I have seen that Ralph Sweets successor does - does anyone else? And are they decent flutes to play?

See viewtopic.php?f=2&t=107067&hilit=walking+stick+flute for prior discussion.

Best wishes.

But why stop there? According to Anthony Baines, 19th century flute player and maker John Clinton "adapted the idea [of the walking stick flute] to English conditions in an umbrella flute."

I haven't seen one.....
