Saw this on NPR's website: https://www.npr.org/2019/08/27/754509680/musical-instruments-to-be-exempt-from-restrictions-on-heavily-trafficked-rosewoo

Not sure when the new rules will be implemented however - could be months. Will try to keep everyone posted.

the NPR article says "rosewood", but this also applies to other Dalbergia woods including blackwood, right?

It should include Blackwood, yes, because that falls under the same restrictions. The NPR article doesn't mention it specifically, but it did mention clarinets which are typically Blackwood.

Big news. Good news for flute players and makers.

Woo hoo!

I'm sorry Casey, Terry et al. had to go through so much to ship their instruments for three years, but I'm glad this nightmare will soon be over.

And thanks again Casey for keeping us all up on this.
