by James Gilliland

Customers have been waiting for James to get back to his shop so that we could offer more of his wonderful flutes. Now we have some more variety. We just recieved 20 flutes to offer. We get what we get and never know what keys or styles he will send. Donít miss the opportunity to own one of these great flutes.

James has mastered the art of working with cane and bamboo combining traditional methods with new technology to craft these flutes. He creates for us the hard-to-find lower keys. He use only the finest material, taking the flute through a journey. Each flute is heat-treated, hand scraped, the inside cleaned and sanded, cut to the correct length and the placement of the playing holes calculated. The playing holes and the reed are burned into the flute using traditional methods. Each playing hole is tuned using a digital tuner. After the flute is completed, it is impregnated with lacquer with a vacuum/pressure process. After the lacquer is cured, the flute is then sprayed with up to 5 coats of clear lacquer and then waxed with carnauba wax for lasting protection. These flutes will have a very traditional sound that no wooden flute can duplicate.

See keys and pricing below.

†You can hear how wonderful Jimís Black Bamboo Flutes sound by visiting recording artist Mark "Wandering Bear" Barger's listening room. He recorded the songs "Appaloosa Dance" and "Blossom Traveller" on his treasured black Bamboo Flute.

Your cases do so much more than just protect my flutes - they give me a good feeling every time I look at them, and I get about as many comments from people about the cases as I do about the flutes. I was hiking in the Grand Canyon and after stopping to play was all packed up and just about to head on down the trail when a woman approached me. She saw the Hummingbird and asked if I had been playing the flute music they heard as they were hiking down the trail. It turned out that she and her husband had hiked to that overlook to scatter their son's ashes on the anniversary of his passing, and she asked me to stay and play for them while they did that. So the Hummingbird has added a lot to my flute experience in many ways!
