    Story Behind the Art:

    Benito Tito, known to his friends as Tito Peru is an expert at crafting traditional Peruvian musical instruments. The artist uses a variety of natural materials to make the different instruments, including bamboo reeds, Castilian cane and goat skin.

    Tito is very keen to preserve Peru's musical traditions. One of his goals is to equip his workshop better tools so he can make more instruments to sell. 'Aiding in the preservation of our musical heritage is my family's legacy. We have carefully crafted traditional instruments for generations. My greatest goal is to best provide for my family, and to send my five children to college,' the artist notes.

    • Very nice flute
      Verified Purchase

      This is a big fat flute. It's polished nicely. Comes with instructions, but you have to really practice to hold it exactly right and get sound out of it. I'm still struggling with that part. But it's sure pretty to look at, the case is really nice, too.

      Verified Purchase

      I don't know how to play quena yet, but this is a gorgeous, well-made instrument, and the tones that we have managed to get from it thus far are lovely. Great bargain.

    • Great gift
      Verified Purchase

      This is a beautifully crafted flute ( and the case is lovely as well). It was a gift for my brother for Christmas and he was very enthusiastic about it both for it's visually aesthetic craftsmanship and it's musical value.

    • Great value quena flute
      Verified Purchase

      The flute I received is fabulous. I had an issue with a pointy wire edge sticking out of one of the wrap areas and scratching me while playing at first, but a little cajoling with my thumbnail got it tucked under so it wouldn't catch my finger. Otherwise ... all notes are "on pitch" and after a couple of days of experimenting/practicing, I had no trouble getting sound out of it and after a few more days I can keep playing pretty well without losing sound. It appears to be well made, and it sounds very nice.

    • I am having a hard hard time getting any sound out
      Verified Purchase

      it is a pretty artistic piece but the sound is not pretty, and very hard to sustain a note. it is a brash sound too. not a pretty sound. like a bunch of cats fighting. For a spade female.

    • Purchased as a gift, not for me
      Verified Purchase

      I ordered these as a gift for my nephew, not for me. He seemed to like them a lot. They looked very nice. That's about all I can say.

My package did not have any.This Flute does not say "conversational piece only" as the "Night Owl" model does. Please advise on obtaining reeds, size, materal, etc. I thought it came with a few. Of course, I'll just have to order a few more goodies to justify the shipping."
