About

Ts'ai Yung's Flute Made from a Rafter

Ts'ai Yung reached the Relay Station of K'o, where bamboo was used for rafters. As Yung lay on his mat looking up these beams, he exclaimed, "Most excellent bamboo!". He used a length to make a vertical flute, which had a clear and carrying sound.
One version of this story goes: Yung said to a man of Wu, "Once I visited the Kao-ch'ien Relay Station in K'uai-chai and noticed that in the cast room the sixteenth rafter was bamboo fit for a flute. I took some, and indeed, it had a most unique tone."
