Custom Meditation Flutes Built From Cured Chinese Bamboo

Myself playing the 5 foot Shaolin flute this is how you sit and hole my David Carradine style flutes.

11/7/17 Updated lower prices, you can buy flutes here or on Etsy at Forest Flutes or on my new website, this is my original site and still takes orders. Completely natural flutes for my entire line are available now. Contact me at orders@thomasrichardsonmusic to enquire about prices. Art printed flutes is my new direction for any art I add to a flute. I want to get the flutes out faster and can do that with print medium pretty much anything can be done artistically.

I use the highest quality bamboo I have in stock for all orders processed through this website.

Original side blown bamboo flutes with 4, 5, 6, and 7 hole tunings by Thomas Richardson Music. Tuned in A440HZ tuning to Pentatonic minor, Arabian, Egyptian, and exotic Raga's from India.

In my home studio/workshop, I cure Chinese bamboo species in various diameters throughout the year. Every week I am building bamboo flute orders for customers around the world. When I build your flute, I will select and cut the bamboo, calculate and mark the holes according to scale and key and then drill the emboucher (breath hole) and the finger holes. I size the holes through burning with a selection of custom burning rods heated from burning fire. I burn the bore of each flute. After burning the bore, the bore is then colored in cherry red like the Chinese master flute builders do on certain styles of flutes. Every flute features hemp or bamboo thread bindings. The steps in the process take a number of days with drying time and there are orders in the cue ahead of yours so please be patient I am going as fast as I can. Hand made flutes with much care and time going into each creation. Many of my bamboo flutes are based on the David Carradine flute design where the bamboo flute can rest on the left shoulder like a violin and the flute has a pole chamber length above the breath hole that acts as a shoulder rest. I've been building David Carradine style flutes since 2006 before his untimely passing. My bamboo flutes are built in the ancient tradition of the master flute builders from China, Japan, and India and inspired by Kung Fu practices and masters, Eastern mysticism and Yogic masters throughout the ages.

Testimonials

Hello Thomas,
I received this morning my kung fu and my egyptian flute without any problem.
They are really stunning and seems to sound very well. I have no time this week end to really play them, but i will try seriously monday and am sure to enjoy them wildly and quickly. They are now masterpieces of my collection.
Thanks for all
All the best,
José - France
