We love wood. Its wondrous diversity of colors, patterns, scents and textures captures our senses. When a new piece of wood comes into the workshop we are like little kids on Christmas morning, unbearably excited to play with it, work, shape and finish it into a beautiful piece of art. We can't wait to hear its sweet voice.
When the raw Quilted Maple that made these flutes came into the workshop we were especially jazzed because the wood looks plain and unassuming in its raw form, but we knew the treasures that were to come. Once finished the intricate grain patterns and lovely pearling colors of the Quilted Maple did not disappoint us, every flute we created with it has a rich, unique, special character and a sweet clear voice.
Being such a lovely wood we added the Quilted Maple flutes to our Nature's Art Signature Series. The design elements on the Nature's Art flutes are purposely kept to a minimum so that nature's creative artistry can be featured.
Being a Signature Series flute, this flute has wonderfully clear high notes and warm full low notes. Very little breath pressure is needed to play it. This feature allows easy control over the notes and playing techniques. It has a strong voice and is extremely responsive, giving the player an intimate connection with each note.
Every Signature Flute is designed to be both a musical instrument as well as a piece of beautiful artwork. Our precision tuning insures that each Signature Flute is easily able to meet the requirements of any musician.
Our Signature Series flutes utilize a unique airflow design that provides exceptional responsiveness and player control, superior amplification, and makes them ideal for a wide range of musical styles.
We consider our Signature Series flutes functional art, which are beautifully displayed on a flute stand in your home, your office, or anyplace that will inspire you to play more often.

Note Regarding Sound Samples Videos
The sound sample videos for this flute are for our Quilted Maple Signature Salamander flute but the sound accurately represents the Quilted Maple Nature's Art flutes because they are made from the same wood.
If you purchase one of these flutes and are unsatisfied by the voice in any way, you may return the flute.
