NEW! Cherry Quena, Key of G

$275.00 (out of stock)

Cherry Quena, Key of G. New design! These quena are the result of many experiments over the years that have resulted in an instrument with superior tuning balance. Well balanced quena are nearly impossible to find, and I don’t believe you will find any quena that can match the intonation of this design.

NEW! Cherry Quenacho, Key of D

$300.00 (out of stock)

Cherry Quenacho, Key of D w/ergonomic finger hole layout for comfort (right hand on lower holes). For players with smaller hands or limited reach, these might be a bit much. You can effectively play with piper’s grip, which helps a lot.

The quenacho is a six hole flute (there is a small thumb hole that acts as a register hole, but it does not play a note) tuned to the diatonic major scale, just like the quena.

NEW! Ebonite Quena, Key of G

$350.00 (out of stock)

Black Ebonite Quena, Key of G. New design! These quena are the result of many experiments over the years that have resulted in an instrument with superior tuning balance. Ebonite is a natural (non-synthetic) hard rubber valued for its stability and amazing acoustic properties, and was very popular with 19th century flute makers. If you are unfamiliar with ebonite as a material, I recommend reading my blog on the subject.

Cherry Basketmaker, Key of F# (right-handed)

$300.00 (out of stock)

Cherry Basketmaker, Key of F# (pentatonic major scale). For right-handed player. This is the same flute as the Basketmaker, only without a thumb hole (which is very tricky on a flute this big). This is the flute that Scott August plays in his amazing piece “Quiet Journey” which you can see below.

PLEASE CONTACT ME BEFORE ORDERING. This flute is not covered by my normal return policy. This is a very large flute and at least half of the players who try it cannot reach the finger holes comfortably. I will provide you detailed information to help you determine if you can play it, but once it is determined that you can reach the flute I will only consider a return on a case-by-case basis. I’m sorry to be so strict about this, but this has been a problem in the past and has obliged me to alter my policy. I get a lot of requests for this flute, but be forewarned that it is a stretch, even for tall players.

Curly Douglas Fir Xiao, Key of C/F

$625.00 (out of stock)

Rare and beautiful Curly Douglas Fir, Key of C/F. Note the slight bend in the body of the xiao. This is a common occurrance on highly figured, narrow instruments and has no effect on the performance of the xiao–it is purely visual and quite harmless. This new narrow bore xiao design brings a richer harmonic spectrum and improved intonation. Redesigned mouthpiece with ebonite cap. To learn more about how the new design came about, check out my blogs: Revisiting the Xiao. and Keene on the Xiao

The xiao is not just for Chinese music (though it excels in that context). These are fully-realized open-holed flutes with a tremendous range, and are ideal for many forms of music. You can play in a wide variety of styles with a remarkable tonal range. A true, Desert Island Flute! You can learn more about the xiao HERE.
