The Calypso Flute is a 14 inch major scale fife. It is a fun flute. The professionally tuned one is good to play with others in Bb major, C minor and Eb. The one tuned to itself is good to play by yourself.
This side blown flute is easy to handle and has a great response on the second octave. It has a very island voice, hence the name.
The Calypso Flute is sanded smooth like a Carribean breeze.
It is all natural, tuned to itself and ready to ship.
This is a good flute for a small, medium and large size hand span and good for someone wanting to play songs.
The Calypso Flute will play in Major, Minor and Pentatonic and is also a nice Jazz flute.
It is a major scale which is taught on my DVD, Bamboo Sax 101 AND the Art of Bamboo Flute Playing found in "Other Products".
Every Calypso Flute comes with a flute bag to keep your flute safe. And because you look marvelous and I am motivated, inside the USA, shipping and handling is included!
What you are saying...
Just wanted to give a shout out and a big thank you for the beautiful Calypso flute that arrived today. I was so excited to get it, that when the mail carrier rang the doorbell to notify me that the mail had arrived, I literally RAN to the door. I'm not kidding. I was like a kid on Christmas Day. I opening the wrapping slowly with anticipation, savoring every moment until I reached the instrument below all of the careful packaging. When I pulled it out put my mouth and fingers over the holes and began to play a few notes of the "Girl From Ipanema," I knew I'd found a new companion. This instrument means so much more in this time of Covid-19 self-quarantine and sheltering in place. You're not just a flute maker, you're now a mental health worker!

Erik, I just spent the last half hour playing a few flutes that you’ve made (a calypso flute and a concert tuned Irish flute, both of which I enjoy every time I play them). I’ve been a customer for about 8 years now, and have purchased many flutes from other companies, so believe me when I tell you that your flutes are some of the best I’ve ever played … AND YOU CAN TAKE THAT TO THE BANK!

Hi, I ordered a calypso flute a few months ago and I just wanted to say thank you again for crafting such a wonderful instrument. I'm a college student and its finals season, I found my only peace during all this madness playing my flute in the middle of the night on campus. Your flutes are so wonderful and I wish I could play it all the time. In fact my flute lives in a pouch I made inside my backpack. Its always a great thing to pull out and have fun with some friends. Thanks again and expect another order from me before the year is out.
Thank you and God Bless, Daniel Hisey May 07, 2011
I just got my calypso flute in the mail last Saturday and I want to thank you for making such a good quality, easy to play flute that has such a nice sound! This is my third flute/pennywhistle I have gotten from you and I have enjoyed every one!
