Original design by Thomas Richardson Music. A 5 foot Martial Arts flute.

Kanji script for Shaolin Kung Fu has been carved, and painted on to the flute body to enhance the intention of this Carradine inspired flute. A Chinese inspired Phoenix motif with a cloud sky scape is hand carved and painted beneath the breath hole of every flute. We also offer a natural version without artwork for a large discount! Just select natural version at check out.

Built from cured Chinese bamboo with a beautiful custom mix stain finish. All finger holes and the bore are burnt via fire and burning rods. Fire and water are used exclusively within my flute building process. Hemp thread bindings. Eco-flow water based stain final application to the entire finish on this flute. Hints of gold in the finish. The bore is colored in burgundy. Final polish in almond oil.

Each flute becomes a custom original piece of bamboo flute art! This piece takes care and time to create.

Tuned to the Pentatonic minor scale. A440HZ tuning. Features 5 finger holes which includes the thumb hole like the Japanese Shakuhachi flute.

The breath hole, is set a few nodes down the bamboo which creates a sound chamber above the breath hole which simply serves as a shoulder rest. This is another bamboo flute design based upon the flute building work of the David Carradine who starred in Kung Fu and Kill Bill and built the flutes featured in the films.

A modern replica of the legendary flutes played by the ancient Shaolin Kung Fu masters.

Hi, Thomas,
Could not wait to tell you how amazed I am at the sight and sound of my new Joseph Rivers flute, which arrived today. I have several very special flutes, but this one has instantly become my favorite. How beautiful it is with the special finishes and the wonderful artwork, but even its appearance cannot compare to its voice. It takes so little breath to bring forth such a rich, full sound. It will be my every day companion from now on.
If it's possible, I would so love to be told about Nicole's artwork on my flute - the leopard type figure with a bird's head, and the lovely flower behind it. (I'm an artist, too, and have tremendous appreciation for the vision behind the work of other artists.) So I'd love to know the significance/meaning/mythology of the figures she chose to use on this flute. Please tell her that I love the artwork, and am only asking in order to more fully understand and appreciate its significance to her as she created it for me.
Thank you for this marvelous flute. I've already chosen my next one, and will return to you for it as soon as it is possible!
Blessings on you and yours,
