The Story: I stepped out of a room in my shop and a dusty basket full of stuff fell to the floor behind me.

I turned around to see what had happened and cleaned up. But from inside that basket a discarded flute was still laying on the floor. I picked it up and noticed the word In-Sen written on it. Curious, I dusted the flute and played it and to my amazement, the room filled with an atmosphere of ancient Japan.

The In-Sen flute had the old Japanese Koto scale created by Yat-su-hashi Ken-gyō, a blind musician-composer from Kyoto Japan, who was born in 1614. He adopted this scale to be played on the stringed Koto. Yatsuhashi who is known today as the father of the Koto, died in 1685. But his old Koto scale lives on in this flute and is ready to fill your special place with the music of ancient Japan.

The In-Sen Flute is made from my home-grown bamboo which first came to Florida from Japan back in the mid 1880's. It is 16 inches long, has a back hole and a pinky hole and comes with a binding and a protective flute bag, and is ready to send you today with free shipping inside the USA.

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!

Hi Erik, Just a short note to let you know I love the InSen flute. Very well made, like all your other flutes. It produces a very nice sound that evokes images of ancient Japan and takes me away from the hectic nature of modern life. Beautiful tone and a joy to play. Russ in Oregon Feb.8, 2019
