Description

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

The flutes featured in Kill Bill were built by David Carradine. He was a unique flute builder, he grew his own bamboo, he harvested it, and designed amazing 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.

My Kill Bill flutes are built from cured Chinese bamboo stock are around 1 1/4 inch in diameter. Each pole varies a bit as no two bamboo poles are exactly the same so each flute is unique and a one of a kind. 48 inches in length 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 F# or G, depending on pole diameter variation. 4 holes on top with a thumb hole like a Shakuhachi flute on the back. 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. Brown hemp bindings are added. This is a beautiful flute and is more ornate then other flutes like this. My Kill Bill Flutes are 4 feet in length unlike others who are selling on Etsy for a similar price, some of their flutes are not the full length like you would see in a real Carradine style Kill Bill Flute.

The length 48 inches and feel of this flute is inspired by the flutes of the ancient Shaolin Kung Fu masters who used their flutes as instruments of meditation, a protective weapon and as a walking stick

Bought this for my husband, 1st year anniversary present. It's absolutely beautiful, with a lovely sound. Could not be happier with it. It took over a month to get it, but as a woodworker, I find that perfectly reasonable for such a masterful peice. The only reason we're not giving 5 stars is because it says in the shop "ready to ship in 1-2 weeks". Also, while the seller was great about responding to my messages, he kept saying it would be shipping within days. After so many weeks, it was hard not to feel more disappointed, and a little nervous each time. My heartfelt advice to the artist, as an otherwise VERY pleased customer: always under-promise so you can over-deliver. A month is reasonable for this masterpiece; just be upfront about it with your customers. Thank you for putting so much effort into our wonderful flute.
