Spirit of Oregon Flute
An Oregon Flute Store Exclusive!

Spirit of Oregon FluteWe are very proud of our great state and wanted to create a special flute to celebrate it. We invited Brent Haines of WoodSounds flutes to design the Oregon Spirit Flute. This flute is a true representation of our state crafted from indigenous Myrtle wood and Oregon Juniper with a special north coast style blue heron block.

Oregon has two distinct and different climates and terrain. The wet western side, and dry Eastern side. To represent the Western half we picked Oregon Myrtle wood to be used for the block, mouthpiece, and end cap. Myrtle wood is rare because it only grows two places on the entire planet. The Oregon coast is one of them. To represent the Eastern half we chose Oregon Juniper for the flute body. Oregon Juniper is a short hearty tree with an elegant fragrance. Tying these two woods together is the special North Coast Indian style Blue Heron block. The Blue Heron is a regular visitor here on the river.

Brent spent hours pioneering a method that could enable us to offer this highly detailed piece of North Coast Indian style art at a fantastic price. The block is a true collector’s piece. The Oregon Spirit flute has a wonderful cedar like tone with a warm spiritual voice. These are six hole flutes tuned in the traditional minor Native American Scale.

Regarding your cases. I had chance to see a 4" diameter case from
FLutecase.com. It was made well, but i did not care for the fleece
lining (it puts fuzzy things on your flute socks) or the weight. That case
was heavy! Plus I like the design where one can remove/unsnap the shoulder strap. The Flutecase.com bag had the shoulder strap sewn on. Also, the top zip lid had to be peeled upward to do the zipping, it then had to be peeled down and had two velcro tabs to keep it there. I much prefer your method of the lid being sewn on and lipped over.
Its simply more fitted/finished looking. Everyone who has chance to see any of my Oregon flute store cases has to touch them. They simply stare and keep talking about how nice they are and how cute or neat it is (the Hummingbird).
Just a small pat on the back.
Thankyou for being in business
