About the Flute Maker
Hello, my name is Val Jason Kobrin. I grew up in the Catskill Mountain region of New York State. There I met a lovely lady and then moved to a small town in Pennsylvania. Twenty five years later that lovely lady is still my wife and we have two sons. Flute making is not my profession. It’s a fantastic hobby that reaches my soul. When each and every flute is finished and played for the first time I am glad that I am able to create an instrument to help others relax. I have been often asked, “How did you get into making flutes?” Well, I always liked music that touched my soul and woodworking so I combined both and the flute was brought into my life. Having a carpentry and woodworking background, I decided to try my hand at it. I have the highest respect for Native American culture and enjoy flute music. People saw me with a flute asked me where I can get one. I offered to make one and it rolled on from there. I learned different ways and styles and combined what worked with the help of my friends.
