About N.D. Lamberson (otherwise known as "Tip"):

"Tip had many friends in the flute world. I knew him as a fellow who was very serious about his work, and, using his training as a musician and engineer, he set about creating an outstanding flute.

Tip will be missed, but his legacy will live on."

--Jack Moore, 9/20/2005

In the 1960s, when Tip Lamberson (a musician, mechanical engineer and pilot) went to the Powell and Haynes flute factories to test the instruments with the idea of upgrading his current flute to a professional one, he learned that he would have to wait for up to eight-years on a waiting list before he would be able to own one.  Disappointed at having to wait that long, he became inspired to make his own flute.  The rest is history.  His flute making skills were so outstanding, that he quickly became one of the most well-respected flute makers of his day;  many flutists agreed that his instruments compared favorably to a Powell or Haynes.

Currently, a used Lamberson is a rare find, as owners tend to hold on to them and treasure them.
