Your cases do so much more than just protect my flutes - they give me a good feeling every time I look at them, and I get about as many comments from people about the cases as I do about the flutes. I was hiking in the Grand Canyon and after stopping to play was all packed up and just about to head on down the trail when a woman approached me. She saw the Hummingbird and asked if I had been playing the flute music they heard as they were hiking down the trail. It turned out that she and her husband had hiked to that overlook to scatter their son's ashes on the anniversary of his passing, and she asked me to stay and play for them while they did that. So the Hummingbird has added a lot to my flute experience in many ways!
