Because bamboo grows in most tropical and temperate climates of the world, many cultures use bamboo flutes as their primary wind instrument. Their ease and playability make them a natural choice for many looking to enter the musical arena, while their richness of tone and great flexibility make them an excellent selection for the experienced musician as well. These instruments are well-tuned to major keys with a quartz tuner, to A440 standard pitch. They are fully chromatic (play all sharps and flats), with a minimum 1-2 octave range. They have an individually colored burnt-tone, lacquer finish, and come with warranty, instructions, and songbook. Flutebags are available for the best care and preservation of your instruments.
