Dear Vance,

Thank you! I picked the flutes up this morning at the Post Office. I'm one happy flute player! The Xiao is exquisite, I expected a top quality instrument and you exceeded my expectations. What a beautiful flute, the figured redwood is gorgeous. And what can I say about the Bansuri, it's exactly what I was looking for, with proper care it will last me a lifetime. I definately see a larger Bansuri from you in the future, once I've replenished my flute piggy bank. Thanks again Vance for you stellar craftmanship and exquisite flutes.

Warmest regards,
