    • beautiful item

      I bought this pan flute as a gift for a friend of mine. He used to travel a lot and loves interesting gifts from around the world. This flute is beautifully crafted and would make an excellent purchase for your own collection or as a gift. I was so impressed, I am actually considering ordering another one for myself.

    • a disappointment

      This was purchased as part of a gift for our daughter who collects instruments and makes drums. She has a number of pan flutes. This one is by far the smallest and very difficult to play etc. Her comment was " I know you spent far more on this than it is worth"In sharp contrast we purchased a small Indian drum in the same order which produces an excellent sound and was half the price. We have generally been pleased with our Overstock purchases but this one falls very short of the mark.

    • Thank you

      At the last minute I was unable to make a trip to my daughter's. I ordered the pipes and a gourd and they were delivered on Christmas eve as promised. They were beautiful and the sounds were awesome. Although mainly ornamental, they make a lovely sound.

    • Excellent gift

      The flute looked just like the picture. Size was as I expected. The person I bought it for loves it and never played in his life. Now he is getting good and is questioning the quality of the craftmenship. Just thought you might want to know.

    • Gorgeous and very authentic pan flute. I collect flutes and this is by far the nicest one. It takes a little practice to get right, but is worth it.
