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. This is the first batch we’ve received this year and have more of a selection to offer. We’ve sold four before we could even post them on-line. We have 17 left. We get what we get and never know what keys or styles he will send. Don’t 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 Jim’s 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.

"I'm middle-aged, not very musical, and with tendencies towards tone-deafness, and I'm five thousand miles away in the deep south-west of England. Nevertheless, JoAnn has managed to nurse me along so that, while my Native American flute obsession may not be under control, it is at least receiving expert treatment. The transatlantic cable bulges under the strain of the e-mail traffic but JoAnn's unfailing support and enthusiasm have made me feel part of the flutie family, and enabled me to make the flute a very important and satisfying part of my life."
