3 Foot Carradine Style Kung Fu Flute


Kung Fu Television series inspired 3 foot bamboo flute!

You've seen Tarantino's "Kill Bill" with David Carradine playing the role of "Bill" and the long bamboo flute Carradine plays in Kill Bill. You have seen the smaller bamboo flute in the Kung Fu TV series. You may have seen the flute Carradine designed for Bruce Lee's "The Silent Flute" and in all cases you were inspired by the vision of these flutes!

I am inspired by the flutes David Carradine built during his life and have created several flutes in the late actors flute design model. My Kung Fu and Zen flutes are inspired by Kung Fu and watching it with my family in the 70's when I first saw the flute that David Carradine played for the Kung Fu tv series which he built. I was fascinated by the flute and the sounds as a young child. It was much later in life that I began to play flute and I was always inspired by the flute from Kung Fu.

The length and sound of this particular bamboo flute is inspired by the flutes of the ancient Shaolin Kung Fu masters who used their instruments as walking sticks, martial arts weapons and as instruments of music.

Built from cured Chinese bamboo. All holes are burnt via burning rods. Using in the key of G# Pentatonic major and minor. There is a pole chamber above the breath hole that adds length to this flute and can be rested on your left shoulder when playing.

The flute is created with a mix of fire in the burning and water for washing back out. I color the bore in cherry red. Brown hemp bindings. A440 tuning. 4 holes on the front and a thumb hole on the back like the Shakuhachi flute, but this is side blown. Pentatonic minor tuning in either G# or A usually.

Kanji script for Kung Fu has been added via a print onto the flute body to enhance the intention of this beautiful natural bamboo meditation flute.
