Blessings & Good day to all......Thanks for choosing Swampfox flutes! :))

Many thanks to Randi in Arizona, Medicine Man - Bill Clark in Canada, for the purchase of my last two flutes... Also thanks to all other bidders and anyone who visited to even take a look! :))

Just skip down below if you have read this part before my Friends......

Swampfox builds flutes to the cutting edge of Native American Flute technology using precision tools found mostly in the Aircraft and Medical Industry. These tools have to be calibrated to perfection and are extremely accurate which enable these flutes to become some of the best in the world today. From the early age of 7 years old, Swampfox knew that he was put on this earth to build the Native American Flute, frequently asking his Grandfather questions about it's construction. He is of Native American heritage. Although he has worked in the modern world, he has lived as close to the old ways as possible, spending much of his time in the swamps and waterways of GA. During his entire life he has only worked for two companies, but has explored many different fields within these places of business, all of which in his mind have been for one purpose... To perfect the Native American flute. Not a day goes by that his mind isn't on this instrument. The positions he has held are as follows: 1. Builder of precision parts for the automotive industry. 2. Inspector of precision parts. 3. Manager of a shipping Dept.. 4. Calibrator of precision instruments. 5. Holds a certificate in the craft of locksmithing and is a bonded Locksmith. 6. For the airline industry he is an advanced composite specialist. 7. Holds an Aircraft Mechanic's license which includes both Airframe & Powerplant ratings. 8. He currently works live aircraft for a major airline in Atlanta GA. Swampfox built his first NAF at the age of 19. He still owns that flute today, and although it was beginner's luck, the flute came out with a beautiful voice. At his job he tries to give 100%, but in the back of his mind there is always the Native American flute. His flutes are built to the highest standards known today using top quality instruments to achieve Concert Quality flutes for the professional musician and novice alike. The flutes play effortlessly, and with the slightest breath achieve top volume, allowing the musician to play longer with better control during live performances and recording. Swampfox has been told by top musicians that his flutes are some of the best in sound quality in the world today. During the 1996 Olympics his flute went all over the world. Flutes can be mass produced, but never has this crossed the mind of Swampfox. There is a higher power source available to every man, but few call on this to help them in their creations. As he asks for guidance from the Spirit Father, it still amazes him every time the story and the flute unfold before his very eyes! Not one is made without the help of the Creator himself. This constant contact during the building process and choosing a totem sets these flutes apart as they become a blessing and powerful pray tool to the new owner.

It may be small, but this one possesses a great force of energy, a Powerhouse flute called, "Blue Thunder!!!!!!!"

A special thanks to baby Creesong for holding the flute for the photo while modeling her new tiny bathing suit! She still laughs at all my jokes! I have to wonder if she is just being nice? :))

Origin:

As many of you know, there has never been a "Swampfox flute" made inside a building. If it is raining, no work is done here. All are born free and become flutes outside in the wind. And there is good reason for this, as sometimes I will receive the flute's given totem, even as it is being created!!!

There is a bird which lives around here during the summer, and this bird has visited me to become part of this flute! It was not an accident when he came, for I was expecting this Indigo Bunting!

Bird watchers call them "Songbird - Extraordinaire!" And when this one flew in on the bright sunny day of this flute's beginning, I found out why they call them this name!!!

The bird's song was an exciting beautiful warble with many different notes! Not one male sounds exactly like another! It had perfect rhythm which I figured would go perfect with this perfect flute! he hee!!! (Guess I have been hanging around my middle son, Dancing Bear, too long?) :))

This flute can also be compared to the Bunting in another way! When you take it into different lighting the flute changes color as you may be able to see in the photos.

The male Indigo Bunting is not really blue... They are actually black, but the diffraction of light thru the structure of their feathers makes them appear to be blue! The bird has no blue pigment at all. This is an advantage when in thick shady forests because the bird will turn black and blend into the background preventing predators from seeing them easily.

If you are looking for the absolute perfectly voiced flute with a wonderful journey ahead, this may be the flute meant for you!

And now I would like to pass on a message which came to me after this flute's first song at the water's edge:

Do not allow your thoughts to defeat you my Brothers and Sisters. We must keep our minds set on the good things of our Creator and stay focused. I have seen people who take a step forward and the next day they take two steps backward! They are good and happy one day and the next, unhappy and depressed. They never really get to the place our Creator wants them to be, never experiencing what he has in store for them.

Friend, you must be consistent. If we do not worry & doubt, but simply believe, our Creator will fight our battles and we will have peace in the midst of a storm. The Creator sees you as his special masterpiece! He sees you as strong and courageous. Sometimes we must step out in faith! His own words says, "The path of the righteous grows brighter and brighter and brighter."

Remember, our Creator's plans are blessed, and if we walk in his plan for our lives, we will experience his abundance in everything we set our hands to do!

I Love you all, Brother Fox
