"Kingma Bass flutes are renowned worldwide for their flexibility, response and power over all registers. The very ergonomic design and well balanced mechanism of a Kingma Bass flute has resulted in much more comfort during performance and rehearsal. This stimulates the player to use it more and more."

"This headjoint for the silver flute is a completely new concept in woodwinds developed by Tai Hei Shakuhachi. It replaces the side-blown headjoint of the western transverse flute with that of an end-blown shakuhachi headjoint to create an innovative new sound and style of music."

 I play Alto Shakulute on "The River" an original composition (under LISTEN) 

Shakuhachi are also made by Monty, 1.8 and 2.1
