100% Earth Friendly Instrument

No cows were killed for this flute!

The adjustable leather strap used for the fetish/bird/totem
mouthpiece puts out a clear tone with good projection.

I make them better than I play them!

Make sure to select the key and scale.
The most common key is F#, followed by G, A, E & D.

The wood burned World Winds logo is the
shorthand sign for 'protection from harm'.

A bit of my process:
All of my flutes have been carefully selected from bamboo
grown for this very reason. Carefully dried, then soaked in
Polymerized Walnut Oil (contains no allergen proteins).
Heat treated sound holes for beveling & crack prevention.
Tied with ultra strong Chinese Knotting Cord bindings.
Finished off with a Museum Quality Wax & polished to a nice
luster. All this 'extra' work ensures that your flute will last as
long as you, maybe longer.

The leather strap acts as the bird/fetish & is fully adjustable.
I like this over the wooden block style because it prevents air
leakage, is easy to clean, and puts out a good clear tone.

Frequently asked questions about WorldWinds

Keep it from drying out! They have been treated with Walnut Oil.
Maintain & clean when needed. If it's dirty or feels dry, then it's time.

Just a drop on a paper towel. Rub in until shiny, with no streaks.
Twist the towel into a rope to get the insides.
This will clean and protect in one step.
Clean with soap & water, inside & out with a towel or sponge.
No abrasive scrubby pads.
As a father of 3, I can say that they are. My shop is in my home,
so I take that very seriously. All materials used are non-toxic and
Earth friendly.
Yes. I pride myself in having a 0% waste workshop.
All bamboo, wood and marble dust is returned to the Earth
to fertilize my bamboo groves.
Everything I make can go outside. But, nothing I make should
stay outside, unless you want it to look like your old wooden fence
or deck. The expansion and contraction of outdoor weather, along
with rain & sun will weather your instrument just like everything else.

If it gets wet, just dry it off with a paper towel.

If it gets very cold or very hot, allow it to return to a normal
temperature slowly.
It's a simplified version of the 'protection from harm" sign. The larger middle line is supposed to be an arrow. And the smaller lines are protecting you from it. I hope it does so for you.
Yes. You have two options for getting the
in-between notes. When trying to lower a
note, add a finger or two below that note
after skipping one hole. In raising a note,
with the the lowest finger currently used,
roll it off the hole a bit. The note will
raise anywhere from a half step to a whole
step. The beveled holes help this technique.
With a little practice you'll be able to hit
any note you want.
