Beautiful cured Chinese stone bamboo with a custom mixed stain finish. Color embellishments in eco-flow water based stain. Brown hemp bindings. Fire treated finish. All holes are burnt in to the bamboo via burning rods. The inside of the flute is detailed in either red or blue and the bore is burnt and detailed with fire.
Pentatonic scale. Tuned in concert pitch. Straight up and down the scale fingering sounds meditative and very Asian.
An easy flute to play with wonderful sounds to explore.
Hand carved and painted Kanji script for Zen. Each carving is slightly different.
Head out into special nature spots to play or to walk to great acoustical spots in your neighborhood which feature natural reverberation. I find the interesting spots can help you to tune in more and explore the sounds of your new flute.
Email correspondence from professional musician KamaNandi after receiving his new ZEN flute:
I left you a phone message, but wanted to write also. The flute is amazing, it sounds great, it looks great, it's top-notch work and I really appreciate what you've done with these flutes. Excellent, I'm extremely pleased.
