WALKING STICK FLUTES


 

    I make walking sticks that can be played. These are normally composed of two or three flutes in a row. The bottom flute is usually the largest with a lowish mellow sound. The top flute is a snake charmer with an unusual and exotic sound and scale. If there is a flute in the middle it will be a fairly high pitched six holed (Irish style) flute. The flutes can be played by one, two, or three people at the same time, as the playing of one has no effect on the sound of the others. Despite the flutes playing very well, the walking sticks are very strong and robust and will support the weight of a heavy person. They are all decorated using my normal flame pyrography technique and come with a comfortable turned hardwood knob or a curved beech handle. They have a grippy rubber ferrule on the bottom and come in any length up to just over four feet or 1.3 metres.

    I also make a shorter single fluted Tai Chi flute which can also be used as a walking stick. These are usually in the range of 26 to 32 inches or 66 to 82 centimetres long. These are also very popular with many of the other martial arts disciplines.
