This flute set was donated to Flutemaker Ministries to help us be a blessing to a needy family.
In this set you will find:
The Meditation Flute Dark: Tranquil, deep, and meditative with an enchanting exotic scale. The 22 1/2 inch Meditation Flute is a Natural Bamboo. finish. Fire treated with bees wax, sanded and bound. 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.
The Oriental Flute Natural: My 21 1/2 inch side-blown Oriental flute is inspired by the Japanese Shakuhachi scale - a deep, rich, enchanting, meditative flute with a melodic, pentatonic scale that plays in 1 1/2 to 2 octaves. In Japan the Shakuhachi was played by former Samurai who could no longer carry their swords by government decree. So they made the flute out of the root stock of bamboo and thus could also use it for protection. The Oriental Flute is made from ancient bamboos from China that found their way to Japan for centuries and then came over in the 1880's settling into Florida to the earliest horticultural pioneers.
The Egyptian Flute: My Egyptian Flute has an ancient, theatrical presence that drops you into a forgotten time. It is one of my favorite flutes and seems to rewire the brain. This flute is great for meditating, for improvising and for dramatic effect in storytelling. To me, this flute is my "Jesus Flute". When I play this flute, it takes me to the place where I can sense His presence as though He were walking by. The flue is 20 1/2 inch to 21 1/2 inches long. The inspiration for this flute came when someone gave me an Egyptian Ney which is a rim blown flute; very difficult to blow for a western player used to a side blown flute. So guided by the Ney, I made a side blown flute, tossed out 2 holes that I didn't hear to be harmonic and was splendidly surprised by what I had. Giving a sweet ancient poetic melodic flute. It is now one of my favorite flutes that you too can own.
The Brazilian Major: The 16 inch, Brazilian Major was named after my best flute made during my time in Brazil in 1972. This flute is a great tool for a musician and has a very pleasant medium voice. It is also a good fit for a medium to large size hand. This Brazilian Major is finished darkened.
The Vivaldi Minor: Has a distinct old world renaissance voice. It is very creative and easy to improvise with. This 15 1/2 inch creative harmonic minor flute carries a classical anointing that draws you into a dreamy place where composition and entertainment flow effortlessly. This is one of my favorite flutes with gorgeous, rich tones. This flute seems to be great for creative folks who want to improvise.
It reminds me of the Renaissance times.
The Chinese Flute: Takes me to a misty, Oriental sunrise, where the music seems to be the soul of ancient China. Finding a place with great acoustics, or playing with reverb, will take you to this enchanting moment. This 12 1/2 inch side blown flute was born in my shop when I was asked by a theater professor to create a Chinese sounding flute for a theatrical presentation. The created flute was so wonderful, I wanted to share it with my customers. Plays real nice in one and a half to two octaves.
Nice flute bag: That can be hung up and carried around the shoulder.
Written Flute Lessons and a DVD: that will cover the Major, Minor and Oriental flute.
I am on a mission to provide 40 Out-Houses to needy families in Nicaragua. Funding for 16 latrines have already been raised and sent. This will make 17!
