Hi folks,

Quick recording with a Bamboo Flute made by Barna Gabos, in Eb. It's a cracker, it sounds very good, and it's very reasonably priced. I was impressed when I first got it.

Hope you like it :)

I like the way the flute sounds, and more to the point, I like the way you play it. Very nice job!

I was interested to see that your flute is made from a section of bamboo that has two nodes. Its quite tricky to make a good sounding flute from a bamboo section that spans more than one node, because of the way the natural bore of bamboo tapers toward the nodes. On the other hand, its also difficult to find sections of bamboo with an internode distance long enough to make an Eb or D flute without incorporating a node in the body section or foot. So, I take this as more evidence that Barna has mastered the challenges of machining and boring bamboo to meet flute specifications.

Cheers paddler!

I agree, this flute is a truly great player, and given the price, I'll probably end up with the whole scale given the quality of the instrument :)

Have you compared them to Olwell's bamboo flutes?

I think bamboo/cane flutes for ITM are under-rated. They sound very good, they are very expressive,
and they are light and reasonably inexpensive. I see them as a competitive option with some of the best flutes made. Yes, very well played!

Funny you mention Olwell, I literally just received an Olwell D bamboo (yesterday).

First impression is it's definitely not as easy as Barna's flute. My embouchure is not that bad, but I haven't figured out the Olwell yet. Barna's flute is a breeze next to it.
