Unfortunately I just missed a deadline for the current batch of Folk Flutes and a flute ordered now won’t go out until October.
On the other hand, that will give me plenty of time to stock up on bore oil, of which I don’t have any! :) Didn’t need any, because my one wooden instrument is wax-impregnated. (Sounds kinky.)
Now I think I’ll go play some whistle, maybe....
Upupupdate: I ordered it from Grey Larsen instead of directly from Casey Burns, so maybe Larsen is getting a bunch of them that are already made and I’ll end up with one of those. I don’t know if that’s how it works. Due to the bugginess of Opera on my platform I almost accidentally ordered the standard spacing instead of the small-handed! I had to re-enter my order after killing Opera and re-starting twice, and forgot to select the hole spacing the second time, but I noticed when I double-checked my order.
Upupupupdate: I guess it says at Grey Larsen’s site that the timing is the same whichever way you buy the flute, so I guess that Larsen just passes the money along, minus commission.
