Hello! My name is Jerry and I'm a Miami, FL based tin whistler. Last year I started making bamboo and PVC flutes and fifes. Mostly aimed at American folk and blues style playing but I decided on making a PVC shakuhachi for practice last week and I've fallen in love!!
I've been a practicing Buddhist for 15 years so the meditation style of playing really vibes with me. I find myself blowing Ro every day now and can't wait to get a better shakuhachi for my practice!
I'm leaning towards an affordable PVC "Yuu" flute to begin but does anyone know of any sources for root end bamboo blanks??
