"I have received only part of my first order and we are thrilled! My husband is delighted with his case, the bead work, & the covers! His microphone has opened up new avenues to him already! He loves the CD's.
Your customer service and great communication is so much appreciated. I can't imagine what he will say when he sees the other cases and items. Undoubtedly, we will spend hours in the catalogue picking out what comes next with each order. His flutes can now travel to the canyon, or on the airplane with him in safety with no worries! We are thrilled to find you and the Oregon Flute Store!
When his flute sings, I hear his heart sing! Thank you!

We offer flutes crafted by several flute makers. Some are Native; Some are not. We do not claim to be affiliated with a Native American Tribe. Some of our flutes are considered to be Native American Style Flutes. Not all our instruments and accessories are being made by tribal recognized Native American Indians. We will indicate in the product description if the item is Native made. Please visit The Indian Arts and Crafts Act of 1990 for more information on this issue.
