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 received 17 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 uses 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.

"I use to be firmly in the "Hey for $15.00 get a fishing rod case" camp. I still believe that a fishing rod case is fairly good protection for what it costs, but I recently received my first-ever cases from the Oregon Flute Store and am I ever impressed! I will be giving away my fishing rod cases!!!! I bought several cases of which a number required special custom sizing. Jeff was patient and helpful in guiding me through the necessary measurements and explaining various options. I opted for the full Pendleton coverings and found them to be incredibly visually pleasing. The handles and shoulder harnesses are comfortable and well stitched...... I am not aware of any other product that I would prefer to provide "hardshell" protection for my flutes."

We offer flutes crafted by several flute makers. Some are Native; Some are not. We do not claim to be affiliated with a Native American Tribe. Some of our flutes are considered to be Native American Style Flutes. Not all our instruments and accessories are being made by tribal recognized Native American Indians. We will indicate in the product description if the item is Native made. Please visit The Indian Arts and Crafts Act of 1990 for more information on this issue.
