Bamboo Flute Size

When deciding which size Bamboo Flute to purchase, keep the following in mind:

  • All of our flutes are side blown flutes and are played like a metal concert flute.
  • We Do Not recommend our side blown flutes for children 7 years old or younger.
  • The longer the flute, the deeper the tone but the more difficult the finger stretch. If you are a beginner you need to be concentrating on getting the clearest, strongest tone possible and not also be struggling to reach the finger holes.
  • It is better to start with a smaller side blown flute and as you become comfortable playing it, move on to a longer and deeper toned flute.
  • If you are a beginner at playing a side blown flute either the Key of ‘A’ or ‘G’ would be a good choice. The Key of ‘G’ is a little longer and deeper in tone than the Key of ‘A’ and is a popular Key for playing along with other instruments.
  • If the Flute is for someone with smaller hands the Key of ‘A’ may be a more appropriate choice.

Approximate lengths of our Bamboo Flutes:

  • Key of ‘A’ is 15 Inches (40cm)
  • Key of ‘G’ is 17 Inches (43cm)
  • Key of ‘F’ is 20 Inches (50cm)
  • Key of ‘E’ is 21 Inches (53cm)
  • Key of ‘D’ is 23 Inches (58cm)
