I also have one that is heat treated and this one sounds super mellow. I love it! Can't go wrong at this price and fast shipping.

This is my first experience with the shakuhachi but the build seems good and the timbre is very nice. Luke also gave me black cord per request instead of the red in the picture. His return policy is amazing for someone who wants to try the shakuhachi, but mine will certainly not be going back!
World Winds Story
This is a family/son operation. My son pitches in with just about everything, and is my go to guy for design ideas.
How did this start? I've been making things since I was a kid.
For most of my life, it was just a hobby. I built for the love of it. No matter what it is, It's a very rewarding experience to put all of your creative energy into something, and then to hand it off to somebody for them to enjoy.
I hope you can have at least half as much fun playing them as I have had in making them.
Thank you & enjoy!

Been making instruments for almost 30 years. They've been good enough to sell for about 15.
I help my Dad. Whenever he has a problem and can't figure out something, we work on it until it's fixed. I help with lots of things, like doing the Waxing on the Ocarinas, tuning the flutes and coming up with new ideas.

Frequently asked questions
How do I care for my bamboo or wood flute?
Keep it from drying out! They have been treated with Walnut Oil.
Maintain & clean when needed. If it's dirty or feels dry, then it's time.
Just a drop on a paper towel. Rub in until shiny, with no streaks.
Twist the towel into a rope to get the insides.
This will clean and protect in one step.
How do I care for my Marble Ocarina?
Clean with soap & water, inside & out with a towel or sponge.
No abrasive scrubby pads.
Are these items safe for children?
As a father of 3, I can say that they are. My shop is in my home,
so I take that very seriously. All materials used are non-toxic and
Is this a green company?
Yes. I pride myself in having a 0% waste workshop.
All bamboo, wood and marble dust is returned to the Earth
to fertilize my bamboo groves.
Everything I make can go outside. But, nothing I make should
stay outside, unless you want it to look like your old wooden fence
or deck. The expansion and contraction of outdoor weather, along
with rain & sun will weather your instrument just like everything else.
If it gets wet, just dry it off with a paper towel.
If it gets very cold or very hot, allow it to return to a normal
What's the deal with the logo?
It's a simplified version of the 'protection from harm" sign. The larger middle line is supposed to be an arrow. And the smaller lines are protecting you from it. I hope it does so for you.
Can a diatonic/chromatic scale be played on your 4 & 5 hole flutes?
Yes. You have two options for getting the
in-between notes. When trying to lower a
note, add a finger or two below that note
after skipping one hole. In raising a note,
with the the lowest finger currently used,
roll it off the hole a bit. The note will
raise anywhere from a half step to a whole
step. The beveled holes help this technique.
With a little practice you'll be able to hit
any note you want.
