Solen Leosouef.

An added advantage to her nicely done keywork is that the Eb key can be removed and used as a bottle cap opener.

Best wishes.

The Siccama flute is as beautiful as flutes get visually, IMO, and the keys
are the most beautiful I've ever seen. Also the keys are very functional and well placed.
Somebody really cared.

A bottle cap opener can be a real important feature! I see it. Beautiful flute for sure.

I am on Solen's waiting list, and a major factor in deciding on her flute was the sheer beauty of the instrument. How it looks is almost as important to me as how it plays.

I find Jay Ham's flutes truly beautiful.
