About

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!

Luke

    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
Earth friendly.

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.

Outdoor use?

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
temperature slowly.

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.
