Bamboo is one of the most useful plants on Earth, and it has a millennia long history as being a valued flute-making material in cultures all over the planet. Crafting high-quality bamboo flutes is a delightful challenge, because each piece is unique and requires the maker to adapt to its organic nature.
These bamboo flutes play the diatonic major scale and are suitable for many types of folk music, including Irish Traditional Music and related styles. They are made from a species of bamboo (bambusa multiplex silverstripe) that exhibits a natural taper in the bore which improves the tuning balance and response. The lip plates are also made from bamboo, though they are tinted with a dye.”
