    I have to say, the picture of this flute looked nice, and the sound clip sounded pretty good..then it showed up. It's very obvious the work put into making this flute. The craftsmanship is spot on, with the beautiful turquoise inlay and the wonderful fine lines for extra eye appeal. The block is wonderful. The sound of the voice is really nice and mellow just what I was hoping for. I will look forward to many years playing this wonderful flute.

    This was the best customer service I have ever experienced. He clearly cares about his customers. It was touching. I have this as a gift to my husband and he lit up when he saw it. Has been playing it every day since Christmas. Thank you!

    I don’t even know what to say anymore. Incredible, awesome, whatever your preferred adjective is… Just doesn’t do it justice. This is my third flute crafted by Jadon and it’s just a beast like every other one that I purchased and like the one you’re about to purchase. Stop thinking and shopping and just buy it from Nipomo. What are your brand new if we playing or you’ve been doing this for decades… It doesn’t matter. Jaden’s flutes meet you right where you are. I’ve decided to just start messaging him with the key and octave range I want. Then I just let his heart create and instrument that my heart can use to express its song and breath

    Phenomenal Flute!! The craftsmanship, tuning and resonance combined with such ease of play is unbelievable. It feels like I’m cheating somehow playing this flute. This is my second flute from Jadon, and there will be many more in my future. This artist is like “my flute maker” forever.

    I am a very amateur NAF player, however, I am not a newcomer either. I have developed quite a collection of flutes over the past couple years of playing in which I have come across Nipomo flutes several times and turn the other way. Mainly because my focus with the NAF is more metaphysical tuning rather than standard or concert grade. I also have strong preferences regarding flute construction that are different than Jadon’s style. With that being said… I was in search of a flute outside of my norm for several reasons, and Nipomo had the perfect fit. So, I gave it a shot. Now let me tell you…I had no idea the caliber of craftsmanship and artistry the Jadon wielded into these instruments. This flute by far is one of the most incredible flutes I have played. Jaden is beyond gifted and his flutes will be priceless when he’s gone.

    I recently bought a G flute from NipomoFlutes. I did my homework and read (and listened to) reviews. I have to admit, I was still a bit worried. I sure wasn’t disappointed! Not only is it beautiful, but I love the sound! It’s pitch perfect and easy to play. I’m watching Nipomo for my next flute. Definitely buying another one once I see the perfect one for me. Thank you! I’m a happy customer.

    This flute is beautiful! The shipping packaging and communications were awesome. There is a slight issue with the tuning ability of the sound block and totem that keeps this from being a 5-star flute. When I try to lift my top finger off the hole, while playing other notes, the flute tends to go into the higher harmonic. I've tried moving the totem, inspecting the block, and nothing seems to fix it. Update: NipomaFlutes promptly contacted me regarding the problem, and we figured it out together. Review updated to 5-stars!

    Nipomo Flutes are great!!! This Low Bm is responsive and has a beautiful voice....and it's made from Sugar Pine!!! I have various flutes made from other woods, but this is my first Sugar Pine and it's a great sounding wood. I am happy with my purchase and Jadon makes a wonderful flute plus his prices are great!!! Fast shipping and outstanding communication!!! Highly recommend checking him out!!! JS

Finding my Passion

The first flute I ever made was for my wife. Not knowing anything about flutes I researched the process and made a very basic flute that barely played. I enjoyed the process and after the first few flutes made, I was hooked and have since made hundreds of flutes in all sizes and shapes. While I have been doing woodworking projects most of my life, music is very new to me. The flute is an excellent way to express yourself and can aid in a meditation practice. The real joy is sharing my passion with others.
Most recently I got very interested in quilting. While flutes and quilting have little in common, both require a great deal of practice, technical knowledge, patience and a willingness to learn.
I have a number of quilters in my family, however really took the plunge after attending the 2022 Modern Quilt show in Phoenix. I purchased a longarm quilting machine and have been creating quilts since March. Naturally my first quilts revolve around flute playing and generally the american southwest. I will be adding a number of quilts as they are completed and available for sale.
