Tell us something.: I make bamboo flutes using concentrated sunlight. I've been making flutes for over ten years, playing with friends and neighbors who help me tune my instruments and encourage me to share my art with the world. I also design and sell solar arrays, and service kiddie rides and photo booths.

I think we were trying these H&Mc flutes but ended up laughing instead.

Not exactly 'lichen', but I'm liking it.

Feadóg and Dixon high D, Aluminium low D by Marek Bzowski, Dixon Practice Flute, Goldifnch low C 3 piece, and my last bought - old German 12 keyed flute(Meyer type). I bought it for 400$ and i think its great deal for keyed flute.

Dixon Flute(30$) and Goldifnch low C(80$) are for sale. Dixon is maybe not the best but good at this price, and for start i think. Goldfinch low is great(and i think its high end whistle with reasonable price).

I made this flute last night, a Low D, I just followed the instructions for it that can be found on Doug Tipple's website. Total cost so far, about $1.40 lol (and about 40.00 in tools) All it is is a piece of 3/4 inch schedule 40 plumbing pipe and a rubber stopper for the tuning "cork".

It's not much to look at obviously but it actually plays. (following link is to a picture of it on my OneDrive account) https://1drv.ms/i/s!Auqcm2kBKRFd6V8SeWSYqq_1AKKT

I'm pretty sure I don't have the embouchure hole shaped as good as it should be but I think it is close. I need a good light to make sure it's cut nice and clean. I have not tried to tune the finger holes yet either, and they also need a bit of cleaning/smoothing. Also I have not actually positioned the cork by tuning. I just put it in the position the instructions tell you to. It could use more love, but so far I'm happy with it and having fun.
Also I have quickly learned flutes are not easy to play! lol I'm seeing stars (from the breathing) my lips hurt, my wrist hurts, my neck hurts.

Thank you to Doug Tipple for posting the instructions. http://tippleflutes.com/
