The Medium Kokin Flute, handcrafted from bamboo by Erik the Flutemaker, is a mysterious sounding side-blown flute with a Japanese character. It plays in a very exotic scale. The flute is held horizontally. It requires a little practice to get comfortable playing such an instrument.

The Kokin Flute has a length of 35 cm and is tuned to itself, meaning that it doesn't correpsond with a regular instrument tuned to A440, but it sounds beautifully in tune when playing solo.

How to play this flute?

  • Aim your airflow against the edge of the embouchure hole
  • This requires some practice and patience
  • The flute is held horizontally, this too requires some practice
  • There's 5 fingerholes on top, and no thumbhole on the back
  • Cover the holes with the pad of the fingers, not the fingertips

The musical possibilities

  • Anything you play will sound mysterious with a Japanese character
  • That's because of the intervals between the notes
  • The flute has a reach of 1.5 octaves
