A custom bamboo flute design by Thomas Richardson Music, inspired by the bamboo flute that David Carradine plays in scenes from Kill Bill. The flute featured in the Kill Bill films is a David Carradine bamboo flute design.

David was a unique flute builder, he grew his own bamboo, he harvested it, and designed amazing and unique bamboo flutes for himself. He tended to set the breath hole a couple cells down the bamboo near the center depending on what length of bamboo he was making his flute out of. The flute he designed for the film, the Silent Flute is an example of his creative flute building genius. The flutes I am listing on Etsy are very similar lengths and look like the flutes Carradine made for Kill Bill, Kung Fu tv series and for the Silent Flute by Bruce Lee.

This flute is built from cured Chinese bamboo stock and is around 1 1/4 inch in diameter and each piece varies a bit as no two bamboo pieces are exactly the same so each flute is unique and one of a kind. 48 inches in length with a double chamber of pole length above the breath hole and built in the David Carradine Kill Bill flute style. The flute can be rested on the left shoulder like a violin when playing . Plays the Major Pentatonic scale and the Pentatonic minor scale usually in F# or G#. 4 holes on top with a thumb hole like a Shakuhachi flute. 2 + octave range. A440 tuning. Natural in look there are no carvings or artwork on this flute.

All holes are burnt via burning rods. The bore is created via burning and then colored in cherry red. Fire and water are used exclusively within my flute building process. Brown hemp bindings.

The length and feel of this flute is inspired by the flutes of the ancient Shaolin Kung Fu masters.
