Announcement   Side blown bamboo meditation flutes in 4, 5, 6, and 7 hole tunings. Asian scales, Eastern scales and Ragas from India on side blown bamboo flutes.

In my studio/workshop I cure species of Chinese bamboo year round and also order various bamboo throughout the year to build your new flute with. When I build your order I bore the flute body out, then drill the emboucher (breath hole) and the finger holes first, then I finish the holes with a burn in the fire outdoors, from a selection of custom burning rods I have made. Many of my flute designs are based on David Carradine's flute design model [bamboo flute can rest on the left shoulder like a violin and is quite long] My flutes are built in the ancient tradition of the ancient master flute builders from China, and India and some longer flutes are inspired by Shaolin Kung Fu masters. I use a colorful custom mix of finishes, an eco-flow natural water based stain and a final treatment of natural oil Some flutes feature brown hemp bindings.

I offer unique bamboo flute tunings, Bhairava raga, Asavari raga, Pentatonic Minor, Pentatonic Major, Bilaval, Arabian, Native Style Tuning, Middle Eastern, and more.

All my bamboo flutes are tuned in concert pitch at A440 hertz. I am known around the world for my flute designs.

Experience "Nada Yoga" - sound meditation within your flute journey.

Thank you for your purchase!

Finally got my flute :D don't know how to get a normal sound from it yet but i get a little high pitched noise from it xD never played flute before so it might take a while to get it right. i like the feel of the bamboo ,it's not too weighty and the fingerholes are not too far spaced out for me :D

About

Building original bamboo flute designs and shipping out around the world weekly.

My shop was started quite a number of years ago in 2008 with my now ex wife Paloma Skye who was the original artist along with myself and we created these flute designs as a couple at that time for a number of years out of our home workshop.

In 2012 Ryan Bemis a long time great friend of mine took over the position of carving artist for Thomas Richardson Music Forest Flutes. We have made a great team and work diligently to produce a great flute that is also a real piece of art. We also have a band named Dreamtime and soon will be offering our albums, including solo flute albums of the flute line by Thomas.

I'm very thankful to be a flute maker and to be producing these flutes for customers around the world for many years now and years to come.
