It is very well tuned and made out of marbled reek. So, like the picture, it has that irregular pastern. I have had it for a couple of weeks and am satisfied with its sound and shape. Moreover, it is noticeably cheap, comparing to other Romanian show based pan flutes. The main flaw is the bag. The add says it comes with a bag, but it is just a thin cloth bag, not suitable for an instrument; good for shopping in a farmer market, but not carrying a very nice pan flute. Overall, this pan flute is a great piece of art and I am happy with this purchase!
