I have a wonderful custom made drone (two chamber) Native American flute in the key of E for trade. I'm looking to trade one quality instrument for another. Ideally I'd like to get a banjolele, but I am open to the right ukulele as well. If I don't get any trade response over the next week or two I will consider opening this up to a sale as well, but I want to give it time for a barter / trade to develop.
The flute is made of cedar with a rock maple bird. It's been used and has some minor surface scratches, but is in perfect playing condition and looks fantastic. It has flames that are hand carved into the top, near the bird. The drone gives it a lovely tone that is absolutely intoxicating to listen to and play. This flute was made nearly 15 years ago, so it's well aged and broken in. A real gem to anybody who plays or appreciates the Native Flute music. It was made by a friend of mine who is Blackfoot, but I have no proof of his lineage so I'm not going to jack up it's value by claiming it was "Native Made". Truth be told, this flute plays great because he has a background in music education, not because of his blood quantum.
If you would like to trade your banjolele or uke, please provide me with pictures, and any brand / model info I can use to research it a bit.
To rule out spammers, I'll give priority response to anybody who responds with "not all drones fly" in the subject.
Thank you for your time!
