Hi again Robin
I've got a list of Irish Flute makers at work most of them are in Ireland
but one , Ralph Sweet is not too far from Ithica. I pass the information on
to on Monday.
By the way, friends who have North American made flutes don't seem to have the
same trouble with cracking as do UK or Irish made flutes. My first wooden
flute was made by Ralph Sweet and I had no trouble at all. The North American
makers are, however expensive.
