Sandhill Crane flute

Here are some images of a Sandhill Crane flute by Greg Jones

The body is made of lacewood.

The block and mouthpiece are made from rosewood. Note the celtic inlay of rosewood too.

The carved head extremely well done. This flute is in the key of Bb and has a sweet, clear tone that carries well.

Sandhill Cranes are the most common crane in the American Southwest with their distictive red head. They are found all over the U.S., Canada and even Seberia.

Greg Jones can be found in Oregon. He does not sell flutes directly but my understanding is that you can possiblly get one by contacting The Flute Case store. I have also heard rumor that Querencia Woodwinds might begin selling them this summer. If you have any interest I would suggest you contact them.
