I have had the joy of making bamboo flutes for 44 years and have handmade over 150,000 wind instruments. It has been an adventure making bamboo flutes in Mexico, Guatemala, Argentina, Brazil, Hawaii, Costa Rica and Fiji, where I got to play for their President.
I settled in Florida due to the great flutemaking bamboo called Bambusa Multiplex that originated in southern China and settled into Japan for centuries. It arrived by steam ship to San Francisco and came by train to Florida around 1884, settling into the tropical gardens of pioneer horticulturalists and then into plant nurseries which spread the bamboo around Florida.
Thanks for coming into my bamboo flute world, you are about to embark on a musical journey.
Hope we can help!
