Post subject:  Purchasing Ramos Quena to learn to play. Advice wanted

Hi,

I've played guitar for years but now I've got the itch to try wind instruments and the quena caught my eyes. I've done a fair amount of research and for a first quena to learn on, I'm looking at this Ramos quena.

For those of you who play, would you recommend this as a beginner instrument or am I not spending enough money?

All input is appreciated.

Looks fine to me. I do play and I have made a couple from PVC-pipe which is fairly easy. I did buy a very cheap one once that had slight tuning issues--the thumb hole was tuned sharp and it should be the same note as overblowing with all holes closed. I think "Ramos" is a good brand (I always assumed they are made by the same guy who has the youtube channel "JMramos40" but I am not so sure anymore--might just be a coincidence: https://www.youtube.com/user/JMramos40). Never tried them but stumbled upon them while looking for new instruments to buy. I bought a quenacho from "boliviamall.com" which was also quite good and well in tune. But the standard quena in G is easier to play.
