Chinese Tan Bamboo 4 Foot Kill Bill Flute Replica

SKU: Tan Chinese Bamboo 4 Foot Kill Bill Flute
4 Foot Kill Bill Flute Replica


A custom bamboo flute design by Thomas Richardson Music, inspired by the bamboo flute that David Carradine built and played in scenes from Kill Bill.

David Carradine was an amazing and inspiring flute builder! An original flute designer, and a skilled builder. Unique in how he approached his bamboo flute designs. He grew his own bamboo, he harvested it, and built long bamboo flutes which featured pole chamber above the breath hole which acts as a shoulder rest for the player.

My 4 foot Carradine inspired Kill Bill Flute can be rested on the left shoulder when playing like a violin. Built from tan cured Chinese bamboo. Tuned to the Pentatonic minor scale. 5 holes with a thumb hole on the bottom like the Shakuhachi flute but this is side blown. All finger holes and the bore have been burnt with fire and burning rods. The bore is colored in cherry red. Custom stain finish. 2+ octaves. 440 tuning. Hemp bindings. Final polish in almond oil. Comfortable to finger and to hold. This is an amazing sounding flute!

I've been building Carradine style flutes for a decade now.

Hey there Thomas,
thank you for the flutes.
they sound great!!
A great combination of fire and wind with the arabian scale flute. Then the other, earth and water.
the difference in weight and energy are very different between the two.
I like it.
Thank you very much
curious on how they are made.
any how,
thanks for making great flutes.
I will talk to you again... when i order my next flute.
