How I price my flutes >>> It is simple equation when working on Native American flutes I charge 25.00 per hour, plus materials .This is considered low when most shops are at 60.00 and up per hour you say why , I have some $5K-6K in tools and $3K in woods at any given time . You are also paying for the knowledge that I have after 25 + years as a Master renovation carpenter .
I am not a person who has a router ,tape measure and sander making your flute I have fully stocked shop, 4 foot lathes ,6+ hand power saws, 7+ power sanders ,burners, moto tools, files, chisels, and a whole lot more. Computer wood programs with 9,000 woods in inventory telling me everything you/ I need to know about the wood, That I pick for flutes, If the flute will sound good or not from the start . I have a medical degree and keep a close eye on wood toxicity,densities also this is why I never dip my flutes with natural Tung oils you are asking for a bacteria to grow in the SAC (slow air chamber) the oil needs be rubbed in and extra oils removed you cannot do this to the slow air chamber . It needs be hand rubbed on taking at least week .Even if you do not want one of my flutes, I suggest you not get a natural finish that is dipped .
I do not charge for the hours spent getting/ looking /searching for the best quality wood at affordable pricing .or the hours spent researching testing different methods . Each one of my flutes are made one at a time woods are hand picked . I do this for the love of my craft and the artistry involved , the culture .. Not all my flutes are listed here just goggle crazybearflutes , to see a full inventory of flutes in stock or Bing pictures of flutes sold in the past . I have sold just under 600 in the almost 5 years I have been making flutes in every region on the planet earth .
I am not a writer and suffer from a form of Dyslexia do to a mugging/beating I got on the way home from a nursing job (career) in 2004. I was told in 2006 to pick up and play a musical instrument to help with memory. I did, the NAF and now 5 years later some 600+ flutes sold to every region in the world .
My flutes have played for Noble prize winners ,children's hospitals, weddings ,funerals and even for the animals at the Houston TX zoo once a year I donate flutes to people in need at crisis centers woman abuse centers . I am not out to get rich but to share a gift that was taught/given to me over many many years .
