"Tuned bone mouth Jacaranda Quena"

Quena and carrying case are beautiful, very well made, the service was excellent and the instrument arrived exactly when expected. I am new to playing quena, professional on other instruments. This instrument plays in tune. With my beginning player skill level I got an F# major scale for the bottom octave (the instrument will play higher with a more skilled player). Therefore I was able to play Amazing Grace in B major, using the bottom octave of the quena. The tip to use the pinkie to hold the quena when the holes are uncovered came in very handy for the top notes of the song. The quena is resonant and produces a wonderful rich tone. My daughter loved it so the quena is hers now. I need to save up for one for me or borrow it back! Thank you Benito for making this wonderful instrument. We love it. I hope you are able to continue making traditional instruments.
