SIDE BLOWN FLUTE - Meditation Flute

Bamboo Body - Exotic Scale

 Regular price $165.00
Unit price  per 

Tranquil, deep and meditative with an enchanting exotic scale.

The 22 1/2 inch Meditation Flute is Natural Bamboo finish, fire treated with bees wax, sanded and bound. 

The Story: This intriguing flute was born in 1975. Just at the very moment I was about to open 2 small holes on this new creation, I stopped to see what it sounded like and was amazed! The music was so beautiful it took me to an exotic tranquil place.

A few times throughout my flute career I would make the Meditation Flute available. I have brought it back again as I have located some longer pieces of bamboo.

Tip: Watch the videos on this page for the secrets to make this flute come alive.

The Meditation Flute comes with a beautiful flute bag. And because you look marvelous and I am motivated, inside the USA, shipping and handling is included!

AN INSTRUMENT IS A FRIEND FOR LIFE

You can pick your instrument in the key you want to play in or it can pick you, as it calls to your soul offering to take you to an enchanted place.

When your heart begins to dance inside you, you will know which one to get.

Shopping Tips: Your instrument should fit your hands, so be aware if in the product description we are recommending an instrument for large hands. Please let us know in the “Order Notes” at Checkout if you are buying for a guy or a gal, if your fingers are very thin, or if your hand span is very small.

Your instrument is guaranteed for one year, but if you take care of it, it should last for decades.

When receiving your instrument during Extreme Weather, please let the package sit in your warmer temperature with all the wrappings for about ½ an hour so it can slowly acclimate from its cold journey. Our bamboo is tropical and needs a moment to say hello!

For even more helpful advice on choosing, playing and taking care of your instrument, check out our FAQ’S - Ask a Flutemaker section here.

Your flutes have gone with me cross-country-skiing, canoeing, hiking in all kinds of conditions all over Alaska. Your bamboo flutes smile at the cold. They are durable and travel and play at subzero temperatures. They are my very true friends. On sunny summer days floating on the lake, the trumpeter swans who nest every year near my cabin show a definite preference for your "Meditation" flute. Flutes are part of my soul and I take one or more everywhere with me. Thank you, my friend! Gretchen in Alaska, March 4, 2018
Erik, I got the Meditation flute and it truly is a one a kind… how unique it is…Love the flute. Love the way the lower notes can be bend like a bass guitar and still sound awesome. I may order a second backup Meditation Flute, it's that special. Best Regards, Craig in Corvallis, Oregon Feb 7, 2019.
Hi Erik, I just received my beautiful amazing meditation flute today! I am in love!!! It has the most amazing deep beautiful tone that immediately captured my heart with its peaceful beauty and spirit. It fits my hands perfectly, and is easy to play. I treasure this flute. Thank you so much!!! May you be continually blessed by Him, and keep on blessing others with your beautiful flutes. You are a very unique and special person, to His Glory and praise. Neoka in Saint Petersburg Florida Nov. 25th, 2018
Hi Erik, The meditation flute arrived today and as always so quickly from the USA to the Uk, thank you Erik. I get so excited waiting for my next flute to arrive wondering what delights I will get from my latest friend. I have never played a side blown flute before so it took me a little time to find the sweet spot but when I did this beautiful rich resonant tone cut the air and once again I was taken to that special place were peace and harmony can exist in this mad world. Once again thanks Erik, God bless you. Franz from UK. August 6, 2018
Bravo good sir. I made the Meditation flute sing and thoroughly enjoy it. Your care and craftsmanship comes through. I've gone ahead and ordered your Old World Flute Set. Thank you Justin in Lynden, Washington, June 19, 2018
Thanks, Erik! Your Meditation Flute is really an outstanding invention. It should be preserved and passed down to the new generations. Thanks again and greetings! : ) Dr. Francesco Perono Cacciafoco, Ph.D. Nanyang Lecturer in Historical Linguistics - College of Humanities, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, August 22, 2017
Dearest Erik, Your Meditation Flute is perfect, I would never ever dream of changing anything in it. Yesterday I recorded my first song, my friend, a professional film maker is editing it. Thank you for the energy you give to the world. These are times when people like you are needed more than ever. Love and light, Erik. Martin Cassar Jan.29th, 2017 Birkirkara, Malta
Hello Erik, The Meditation flute arrived today and the first impression is described as awesome. I´m by no stretch of the imagination an experienced musician. After a couple of minutes I found that sweet spot and produced my first full sound. Aside from the obvious quality of the flute there are many small details that add additional value to the purchase such as the practical wisdom sticker on the wrapping that reminds you to give the flute some time acclimate if delivered during extreme weather. The flyer with an excerpt from your autobiography. The few pages are enough to make it clear that you have led a life worth knowing much more about. Calling you simply “the flutemaker” is a gross over-simplification of things. I´m getting the impression that there is much to learn from you beyond flutes and scales. The tutorial flyer with your thoughts on how to get started with the flute. That makes the flute easily playable even for a novice like me. I got more out of this flyer than out of a flute textbook I used for reference. I haven´t seen the art of composing music wrapped up in such a handy nutshell. You wrote “Thank You” on the envelope that accompanied the package but it seems I have to thank you. The best testimonial I can give about your work? I will buy again. Marco Mueller in Germany, Jan.28th, 2017
Dear Erik, I wanted to play music because through it I can express what my words fail to: what I feel for the world: love, sorrows, moments of joy that cannot be captured except through little moments of poetry, as you call them. So, I ordered the Meditation flute. So far I have played in various circles. Your meditation flute is mesmerizing, I was literally blown away by it, a journey on its own, a whole story from beginning to end. Gratitude for your dedication to us musicians, Erik. Your energy is felt through and through, and it is truly touching. Thank you Erik. Martin in Malta Jan.28th 2017
Erik, I just received the meditation flute. It is so beautiful! Feels so smooth in my hand and has a wonderful tone. I can't wait to play it in a big, reverberating room. I don't often name my instruments. But I've chosen to name this flute "presence". Thank you so much and merry Christmas! Joe in Bangor Maine, USA Dec. 9h 2016
Erik, I wanted to thank you for such beautiful craftsmanship, the sound of the Egyptian and Meditation Flute is beautiful and it will be a great aid… I am grateful for the wonderful surprise of the cases to protect them and the additional paperwork provided on how to play and to know about some of your journey. Thanks again, David Jones in New South Wales, Australia December 5, 2016
Hi Erik, I just wanted you to know that my meditation flute came in safe and sound some weeks ago. The flute came in very fast, within week! Big thanks for that. The mediation flute is soothing... the smokiness of the burned finish is wonderful! I get that "ahh!" feeling as the smell associates to the flute. Nice touch! Thanks for the great service and flute! Antti Lehtola in Finland Oct. 15th, 2016
Hi, Erik I was playing the Meditation flute. I have to give you all my congratulations. The Meditation flute is something impossible to be expressed by words. It is necessary to listen to it 'live' or, better, to play it. Outstanding! Dr. Francesco Perono Cacciafoco, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore Oct. 6th, 2016
Dear Erik, I just received my meditation flute. It is so nice. I also didn't expect it to come with the cocobolo wood end, and the case of beautiful brocade fabric. I can't say enough. The bees wax finish shows such care. It plays so nice. It really sets a mood... Thank you, John S. in Philadelphia , Pennsylvania July 15th, 2016
Hi Erik! Today I received the Kiowa, the Medium Arabian and the Meditation flute. As always, they are WONDERFUL!! The Kiowa has a warm marvelous sound and extraordinary artwork! No words for the deep meditation flute, so enchanting! The Arabian is so creative and exotic. Now I have 5 of your flutes, and addicted! The Travel Flute Bag is beautiful, cool, very comfortable, large and able to contain all my flutes. A great item for a musical journey! Thanks! Happy Christmas holidays to you and your family! See you in Fluture...! ; ) A big hug from Francesco in Taurasi, Italy Dec 15, 2015
Hi Erik I just can’t seem to put them down, The KungFu and Meditation Flutes have such an amazing sound. When I start playing it’s like I’m in ancient times of the samurai… I’ve never played the flute before, until I got them from you, It only took about an hour to teach myself how to play, It seems I was meant to play, I’ve done some recording and when I play it back it sounds like I’ve been playing for years. I can’t thank you enough for how much these flutes are changing my life. I wouldn’t buy a flute from anyone else, you certainly are the world’s best Flute Smith. Looking forward to buying more flutes and a sax. Thanks again Erik and Happy Holidays Travis in Wisconsin Dec. 5,2015
Erik, I just received my Meditation Flute it's beautiful! I will definitely be ordering more! That was the fastest I've ever received anything from the U.S.! Thank you so much, I am humbled deeply by your craftsmanship. Jasmyn in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada Jan. 27, 2015
