Thank you guys and thanks to Erik the flute maker


Engels (Verenigd Koninkrijk)19-01-2021 - 14:01:08GeorgeI've received my spirit flute today, it took a bit longer than I'd hoped but that seemed to have something to do with me being in the UK right after Brexit. Anyhow I am very pleased with the instrument.


Engels (Verenigd Koninkrijk)12-12-2020 - 13:25:57OrryDear Fluteshop,

After ordering my first wind instruments at your webshop I got hooked, the quality, the assortment and service is superb. My collection grows and will continue to grow thanks to you.

I definitely recommend shopping here and don't hesitate to send your questions by email since you'll get professional and personal answers.

Thanks again and as Erik says, well see eachother in the fluture ;)

Engels (Verenigd Koninkrijk)10-09-2020 - 10:18:55GreteThe flute arrive to Chiryu post office this morning! Super fast!!
It arrived undamaged and in good shape. Even the box looked good in spite of the long journey.


Engels (Verenigd Koninkrijk)27-08-2020 - 16:06:17AlexI am very, very satisfied with my STL green / blue ceramic max range double pendant ocarina.

Once I figured out how to handle the fingering (it's two separate six-hole pendant English style ocarinas), I was away and learning to pick out tunes from Happy Birthday, to London's Burning, to Believe Me If All Those Endearing Young Charms. By ear.

I've had practically zero experience of playing musical instruments in the past, but this ocarina is like a professional instrument that's simple enough for a newcomer to learn.

Thank you.


Engels (Verenigd Koninkrijk)26-08-2020 - 16:30:33JaroslavJust wanted to thank you for your prompt response and let you know that I have now received my shakuhachi!
I am extremely happy with my purchase and I am blown away (no pun intended) by how great the flute is considering its very modest price!

Looking forward to shopping with you again in the future!

Engels (Verenigd Koninkrijk)30-06-2020 - 09:54:29Alex GreeneI received mine yesterday. It's beautiful.
Now I'm going to need the tabs to work out the scales.


Engels (Verenigd Koninkrijk)19-06-2020 - 13:31:15DannyAfter contacting the Fluteshop support to ask if you still ship internationally in these times, I quickly received a confirming mail, ensuring me that there are no problems. Lo and behold, 3 days later the package containing my new High Spirits flute arrived at my home in perfect condition! I was a little worried but thank you guys for coming through!

Engels (Verenigd Koninkrijk)08-04-2020 - 14:08:43AndreaI just want to say that the flute has arrived yesterday. And: I actually can cope with it despite my really small hands. Even the pinky is no problem.


Engels (Verenigd Koninkrijk)23-03-2020 - 13:56:34KayleeThank you so much for the kind and helpful responses to all my questions. I was able to make a choice based on your advice, and now that I've received my flute I know I made the right one. It's a beautiful sounding instrument. I'm excited for the journey ahead!


Engels (Verenigd Koninkrijk)25-02-2020 - 12:59:35ThomasFinally managed to save up enough for Erik the Flutemaker's Egyptian flute, placed my order and 2 days later a beautiful long parcel arrived at my door. I've just unpacked the box and the flute looks beautiful, I can get a few notes out but it's going to take some practice to make it sound beautiful. It's going to be a journey!


Engels (Verenigd Koninkrijk)03-02-2020 - 19:29:05JavierMy tin whistle arrived in perfect condition, and it plays smooth as i've never experienced before! Very happy with the purchase, highly recommended!

Engels (Verenigd Koninkrijk)27-11-2019 - 16:38:09NanaAfter I received my order I contacted the support team because there was an accessory missing in the parcel. They got back to me really quickly and assured me that they'd send it over right away. The missing item came in 2 days later, everything's prefect now!

Engels (Verenigd Koninkrijk)29-10-2019 - 15:01:35Ken KaniffToday I got my flute in the mail! It's simply a wonderful instrument. I'm talking about Erik the Flutemaker's Oriental flute. It's going to take me a while to get used to the transverse style of playing, but oh boy am i having fun with it!!


Engels (Verenigd Koninkrijk)11-10-2019 - 12:51:28Jakejust wanted to say thanks for all the detailed answers to my questions which led me to order your shakuhachi flutes. the bamboo one in D is really amazing, i've been having a great time with it seeing myself improve over time! it is a challenging instrument but it feels really rewarding being able to play in both octaves now.


Engels (Verenigd Koninkrijk)03-10-2019 - 14:41:13ZoranMy collection of tin whistles is taking nice shape :) got most of them from you guys, and have to say the service thus far has been excellent. Shipping has been reliable to Croatia, and all the whistles arrived safely. Thank you for the care.


Engels (Verenigd Koninkrijk)27-09-2019 - 11:45:34KennethJust received my beautiful Stellar Flute in the key of F#! The instructions are very clear and easy to follow, and I can get a pretty decent sound out of it already! Now on to becoming a master! :)


Engels (Verenigd Koninkrijk)17-08-2019 - 11:05:24AndyI was sent here by Erik the Flutemaker himself to be able to get his instruments without the high shipping and import costs that come with order from his own store in America.

I can confirm that I did not have to pay any kind of extra costs upon receiving the parcel!


Engels (Verenigd Koninkrijk)06-08-2019 - 18:46:15keithi highly recommend this seller - fast communication, speedy shipping and the High Spirits flute I received is simply stunning!! the wood is really beautiful, i didn't expect it to look and sound this good in real life! thank you and bless you

Engels (Verenigd Koninkrijk)26-06-2019 - 21:52:26MaximThank you for making High Spirits flutes available in Europe in reasonable prices. It would have been very expensive to order a single flute from USA. I'm very happy about my new flute!

A few days later the DVD arrived and I was able to start my journey on this beautiful flute! Thank you so much for quickly following up on this problem!


Engels (Verenigd Koninkrijk)14-05-2019 - 20:10:05JanI have ordered a Thai flute here a long time ago, I am still very bad at playing it. Recently I have ordered a Native American flute from Fluteshop and was suprised at how easy it is! It sounded beautiful the day I got it!! I would highly recommend this type of flute for people without musical experience :)


Engels (Verenigd Koninkrijk)10-05-2019 - 14:33:55LeviI ordered my native flute on monday and it already arrived 2 days later in France!
