Thank you for taking the time to view our line of Handmade Inked Bamboo Flutes. These beautifully crafted flutes are handmade by us, at our home in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. Each flute is beautifully engraved and inked by my wife Linda with a design of your choosing.
All of our Handmade Flutes are transverse flutes; this means that they are side blown flutes, played similar to a concert metal flute. We Individually Tune our Handmade Inked Flutes to a major scale and they play a range of up to two octaves. These are well-tuned flutes that are excellent for playing along with other instruments. They are GREAT for jam sessions!

A free instruction booklet on how to play our Handmade Flutes is included with every flute purchase.
The inked design is located in a band around the top of the flute, between the mouth hole and the top finger hole. Linda first engraves each design, by hand, into the flute; it is then inked, by hand, using full color permanent ink. Finally, small Austrian crystals are inlaid into the design to give the flute a bit of sparkle. A durable waterproof finish is then applied to the exterior of the handmade flute for protection.

We do not provide Sound Clips. If you would like to hear the beautiful tone of our Handmade Inked Flute, call us at 413-298-3759 (10AM-10PM EST). We will be happy to play our flutes over the phone so that you can hear the different keys that our Handmade Flutes come in. Other than playing live for you, we feel that this is the best way to provide you with a clear sample of exactly how our flutes sound without any embellishments. We do not mind doing this. This is what we do at the many craft shows and music festivals (over 30) that we attend yearly.
