    The text is called "Lorem ipsum". In the typesetting world, it's used for a placeholder until the writer gives you some real text.

    I do think the pics are nice.

    All of those taragoto photos make me wonder if anyone has yet used them to replace the saxes in a big band? Perhaps some Germanic operation (Bert Kampfert) during the 1930's, in an attempt to get around the Nazi ban of the "devil's instrument" ginned up a section for some hot dance numbers in Bayreuth…

    If he hand makes all those instruments it is very impressive. Astronomical if i may say. I've always like the simple instruments even though I only have a couple Alberts.

    This came up on ebay (via my search alert for csakans).

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Wooden-C-fl...296?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item20da6102e8

    EDIT: Just to add, appears to be a kaval but with boehm-ish keywork, and with multiple heads. It doesn't seem to actually come with a giorgi head, but the seller mentions would be possible. Von Vittorelli is also mentioned here: http://www.flageolet.org/bas.html about working on a bass flageolet that looks far more like a fujara. I don't see myself plunking down that much for the instrument, but I'll be keeping an eye out for more of his work.
