Here is a brief description of some of the unique bamboo flutes I make, and which YOU can adopt!

The models include Bass Meditation Flutes, Raga Flutes (tuned to East Indian "Ragas" or modal scales), Panpipes, and Bamboo Birdcalls of all sorts. I also make some "regular" diatonic flutes (Do-Re-Mi), but specialize in the extremes of bass flutes and killer piccolos, and every size in between.

Unlike many flute makers, who seem to favor a certain species of predictable bamboo (typically "silver stripe"), I try to make various flutes out of interesting and uniquely beautiful pieces of bamboo, including very knotty, bent, curving, or naturally weathered specimens. Each piece is produced in a process of extended meditation, whereupon I try to allow the bamboo to inform me of what type of flute it will become, instead of trying to be the overlord who demands that everything in his vicinity conform to his own rigid idea, thereby producing cookie-cutter mass-produced flutes that have a dim spirit. Not that any other flute maker is like that, but I'm just stating a hint of my personal principles!

P.S. I have many CDs available, and you can hear some at www.MySpace.com/dassmusic

Have fun! Hope to hear from ya!
