An end blown reed flute played in a similar manner to a clarinet or saxophone. It uses a standard saxophone reed and has a very dynamic sound not unlike a concert instrument. This gives everybody the opportunity to learn how to play a reed instrument without the huge expense. By becoming familiar with the Bamboo Sax the transition to a brass or woodwind instrument is a relatively simple procedure.
Because of its compact size it can be carried in your pocket and is ideal for travelers. It can easily be taken to places you wouldn't dream of taking a real saxophone such as the beach or bushwalking. It also serves as a handy practice instrument for accomplished reed players on those occasions when one just wants to have fun without all the fuss of a brass sax or clarinet.
Simple Bamboo Recorder
We'll also look at the making of simple bamboo recorder. Strictly speaking a recorder is not really a flute for reasons covered later. But many people like these instruments so I've included a section on these. Just in case you are wondering about the picture. Of course I know that it bears absolutely no resemblance at all to bamboo. As it happened at the time of writing I did not have a bamboo recorder around so I drew the picture myself.
Free Lifetime Upgrades !
Flute making is an immense subject. Like many things it can go on forever. When I first got the idea to write a book on bamboo flute making I had the vision of a grand work in all the depth that I could imagine. After I started on the book I realized that such a work would really take many years to complete. And as I was getting continuous requests for the book I decided to at least get a version out that would be a good start.
Consequently I anticipate that this E-book will always be a sort of work in progress. I will be updating it regularly as I see fit. The actual techniques for making other different types of flutes will be added in time as well as any new methods that I come across. In view of this and as an appreciation to those who purchase the book I'll be offering Free lifetime upgrades!!
That's right when an updated version of the E-Book is released everybody who has purchased a previous version will be able to download the new version for free for life! I don't think you could get a better offer than that. That's how confident I am that the book will fill a huge need.
Here are some great things people have said about this ebook
When I first got interested in bamboo flutes I almost gave up because I could not find any reliable information.
Then I found this book. It was, and is, a treasure trove of information answering every question and more. Even the author himself helped me along the way many times.
I've learned how to make concert quality tuned flutes of all kinds including saxophones and how to craft tools and harvest bamboo. I've also applied the knowledge in the book to make my own unique instruments and musical scales!
This is the best bamboo flute book for anyone at any skill level of bamboo flute making. I made bamboo flute making a big part of my life and it would not have happened if I had not found this book and Marek's help.
I have been on a downward spiral over the last 12 months. Hate my job what's the point , all that stuff. I ended up having a bit of a breakdown. Your book proved to be just what I needed to re connect with what's important. Making a thing of beauty out of natural materials and then learning to meditate with that instrument is a very fulfilling experience. Life isn't all about profit. Your book has been a vital tool in my recovery.
I finally download and bought the full version. I am very pleased. I have made a few flutes myself and your tips will save much trial and error in tuning the holes and bore.
I have thoroughly enjoyed the flute making ebook. As a matter of fact, I have created 3 Native American flutes so far using freshly cut bamboo by following your preparation and curing procedures. I am including a picture of one of the flutes I just finished.
First, let me say that your book has been awesome! You're right. There's not much out there as far as resources on how to make bamboo flutes. I looked online for two days before finding your e-book. Since I've read your book I've been caught with the bug! (my family would more likely call it obsessed! ;-) I'm looking very forward to making these flutes. Thanks so much for such an informative resource!
I've just purchased your ebook. What a splendid piece of composition, layout, and beauty. It is precisely the book for which I've been searching. I've enjoyed the ebook immensely. I've made several flutes, but I'm especially enjoying the bamboo saxophone.
Marek, I thank you for what you have done, what you have given the world with your ebook. Well, enough for now from this 71 year old student of yours.
James D. S.
I bought your E-book about a year ago, since then I have been making flutes based on your instruction. Some of them have been excellent and some have been trash; however, I've just finished my first Native American flute and it turned out great. Anyway, I'm so proud of it that I wanted to show you a couple of pics and say Thank You.
By now you may be curious about how much the Ebook costs. I thought a lot about this and tossed around many prices in my head. What must be remembered is that "How to Make Your Own Bamboo Flutes" is not a novel or some light reading material that you read once and forget about. It is step by step manual that will enable you to make your own beautiful bamboo flutes.
Whatever you chose to do with this knowledge is your own business of course. But it should always be remembered that you can always sell you instruments if you wish and make some extra cash. And you can do this by doing something you love. In fact I personally know of a few people who have learned to make the bamboo flutes from my Ebook and set up their own business making them! It has given them a whole new avenue and purpose in life!
So the benefits of this Ebook are many. Not only will you gain satisfaction from making your own beautiful flutes you will also be spreading the sound of the bamboo flute and uplifting everybody you come in contact with. And you can make some cash as well! Making money doing something you love! What more could you ask for?
Well anyway for now I have priced this great Ebook at US$29.95. Considering I am offering free lifetime upgrades I think this is a good price. Also if you even ever sell just one flute you've made your money back! And believe me bamboo flutes are easy to sell if that's the way you want to go.
In the end though it's not about money at all of course. It's about the sound of the bamboo flute. May we all hear more of it.
Happy Flute Making
