When I build your flute order I drill the emboucher and the tone holes first, then I finish the tone holes with a quick burn from a selection of burning rods. Many of my flutes are based on the David Carradine (KUNG FU, Kill Bill, Silent Flute) design model [bamboo flute can rest on the left shoulder] built in the ancient tradition of the master flute builders from China, Japan and India. Fire and water are used within the building process. I use a nice custom mix of dark red stain finish, an eco-flow natural water based stain color embellishing application and a final treatment of mineral oil. These flutes are beautiful and one of a kind. Each one is unique.

MP3 soundfiles are located on my website.

Thank you for your interest in my unique bamboo flutes. Peace to you.
