Instrument-a-day 13: Bamboo Flute

The park near my house is a collection point for old christmas trees to be recycled. Someone dumped a bunch of bamboo in the pile (christmas bamboo?) so I grabbed a stalk and let it dry for a month. This bamboo really wants to split – in fact, I can hear the flute spontaneously disintegrating in the other room.

This is a Native-American-style flute (two chambers, with an external air passage connecting the two) made with guidance from Sammy Tedder’s page.

It sounds like this.

  3. It’s too bad Sammy just shows pictures and doesn’t give instructions or explanations. Some of the pics are self-explanatory but not all.
