I got the book, Its pretty useful with lots of suggestions on how to play the soanta. The history and general notes on the piece are probably going to be of most use to me for programme notes.

Yes I know he said recycled, I just didnt realise they made black diapers. Ok its not as beautiful as a silver flute with pointed arms might look, but having played it comparing it to other flutes in the same price range, I enjoyed playing this one the most.

For those who are members of the British Flute Society, the latest magazine has a review by Robert Bigio, Wooden flute and headjoint maker. He really like this flute. I tried it, but at a flute stand so couldnt hear myself properly whilst everyone else tried playing all the other flutes!
