Wow. First off, the seller is amazing in keeping up on the shipping. And the guitar pick itself was so much better than I even imagined. I've never been happier with an item - this is seriously going to make the best gift. Thank you!
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!

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.
