The bamboo flute is one of the oldest and simplest musical instruments in the world. Our bamboo flutes are made with care and quality to fit your most every musical need. Most cultures of the world have some type of transverse flute (which simply means a flute blown across, a side-blown flute.) Because bamboo grows in most tropical and temperate climates of the world, many cultures use bamboo flutes as their primary wind instrument. Their ease and playability make them a natural choice for many looking to enter the musical arena, while their richness of tone and great flexibility make them an excellent selection for the experienced musician as well (see professional quality flutes below.) These instruments are well-tuned to major keys with a quartz tuner, to A440 standard pitch. They are fully chromatic (play all sharps and flats), with a minimum 1-2 octave range. We can't make a 2 octave soprano C or D. They have an individually colored burnt-tone, lacquer finish, and come with warranty, instructions, and songbook. Flutebags are available for the best care and preservation of your instruments.
