Looking for reviews/comments on this. I ordered this, and is pretty sturdily built, but so far I can't go to the highest note in the second octave (and beyond).

I came across posts on the interwebz about quenas being good for 3 octaves, so wondering if it's the quena or me :)

Try leaving the lowest hole covered ooooox. That can stabilize the highest note. It might be tricky because of the large bore of a quena. And I guess you have a fingering chart? The fingerings for the 3rd octave are quite different. This might help:

Here is another one, since the one above is for fifes and tin whistles and lacks the thumb hole.

And, are you coming to grips with the quena?
