Kaade's Instruments

The "Shillelagh" Flute


This is currently my primary performing flute, 6-hole flute in concert D tuning by Scott Boswell, made from a long, multi-node piece of Texas bamboo so that it naturally tapers, and capped with a piece of purpleheart wood.

This flute was once one of my primary instruments, a Tony Dixon 3-piece synthetic flute (still worked in the rain.) I had recently added a silver faerie bottle cork as an end cap before it was stolen in Austin, TX. If you find it, please return with the thief's fingers attached, and I will perform a free show for you.
