Zacciah Today - 2011

Sunreed Instruments is a small workshop in the Green Mountains of Southern Vermont. Since 1977, we have hand crafted a wide selection of fine quality bamboo flutes, shakuhachi, bamboo saxophones (our own invention), bamboo clarinets, Native American style flutes, and didgeridoos. We offer one of the widest selections of bamboo wind instruments available anywhere. We, also, provide a wide selection of indigenous drums, simple percussive, modern concert and world instruments at very reasonable prices. We also offer World Instruments, such as our fine authentic Australian Aboriginal Didgeridoos, available on our didgeridoo page, our premiere cedar Native American "Love" flutes on our Native American Style Flute page, our fine traditional Native American crafted drums, and our cedar shakuhachi and transverse flutes made in our own shop. Educators will want to see our pages on our unique and highly praised multi-cultural Music Education and Native American Education Programs.  And, we have become one of the premier on line resources in the field of sound healing, and the authentic use of these instruments in therapeutic application, for personal, professional and clinical application.  We have up to three years of training available in this field, and offer our years of expertise in helping you select the appropriate tools for sound healing, including the extraordinary sounds of Pure Crystal Singing Bowls, Tuning Forks, Native American and other Shamanic drums, Tibetan bowls, bells, and gongs, and the many other fine instruments you'll find on our pages.  We are a small company highly service oriented.  We are available by phone for consultation or assistance in your purchases.  You can find information about our trainings here.

You will find among our pages our many instruments which you may order by phone, fax, mail, or on our secure server. You may use Mastercard, Visa, Discover, PayPal, personal or bank checks, or wire transfer for payment.

Our instruments are produced with the aesthetic quality of over 35 years of experience, are well tuned with electronic tuners, come with complete instructions, and are fully warrantied.

While our student and intermediate flutes are sufficient for many players, our professional model flutes are exceptional, made with high standards, compared to flutes made by some of the worlds' best makers, and should suit the needs of practically any professional or musician seeking the highest quality, capable of playing in most professional/concert/performance/recording situations.

Fine Instruments For Over 35 Years

With our 35+ years of experience, we, also, are better able to serve you in selecting the right instrument for your specific needs. We are specialists in the nature of sound and music as a healing vehicle, and understand the principals of sound therapies, gaining great accreditation at this time. Zacciah is Director of Education for the International Sound Healing Network, and has extensive ability to help with instruments typical to that profession.

While we have had a number of fine individuals help us through the years with preparation and finish work, exhibitions, office and shipping, our founder, owner, and resident and only flutemaker is Zacciah Blackburn. Zacciah was born and raised in Texas. While attending college at the U.S. Naval Academy, he was guided to change his life to a more spiritually based existence. Soon after, he was introduced to the bamboo flute, and migrated to the beautiful mountains of New England in the mid 70's. While seeking to share his love for the rich and soothing qualities of the flute, he made and gave flutes to his friends and neighbors. The demand for his work grew, as did his love for flutemaking, as he was introduced to more and more bamboo wind instruments of the world. it was inevitable that he would become a flutemaker. Over the years, Zacciah developed his unique style of craftsmanship, created the bamboo saxophone, and exhibited his work at major fine art, craft and music festivals and galleries across the nation. He has won numerous awards for his work. But his greatest reward has been the overwhelmingly positive responses he gets from you.

Thank you.

It is indeed a blessing to be able to provide you with unique quality instruments of the world, derived from my deep love of each instrument, and the cultural and spiritual heritage which each reflects, and which I feel so connected to.
May your musical and life journey be a rich one.
