I have purchased three flutes from Todd of Southern Cross Flutes (a drone F, low B and more recently a high A). All flutes I have purchased are in native New Zealand wood. The workmanship on each flute is quite simply superb. Each flute equally sounds beautiful, all with their own voice, and all of an exceptional high quality in tone. The high A has a superb clear tone, the Low B flute which I call my grand daddy flute has such a rich depth to it, and the F drone is a strong clear flute and sounds equally good with or without the drone coming through. I have had so many people comment on his flutes, and that is a credit to his craft. I highly recommend Todd and his flutes. He will always take the time to answer any queries and talk to you about his flutes. I am a very happy fluter!!!
