Bamboo Irish flute?
Beginner question alert!
So today I ran across a lady who makes Irish Flutes from bamboo. They’re all one piece and very lightweight, but they produce a really nice sound. (This may get me into playing the flute, I tried out a couple and she’s making a high D right now). I’m wondering if anyone’s played a flute like this and if they can hold up to session use? Bamboo seems like it’d be a bit brittle and would deteriorate faster than some other wood. What’s the care for a simple, one-piece Irish flute like? These are handmade and hand tuned. I could get a solid 2 octavesn. High c and d were a bit hard to get but again I don’t really play the flute.
The lady also knows a few folks who play music around here and I can finally (maybe) find folks to do a session with.
