Fula Flutes

For more than a decade, the Kassa Flute Co. has crafted the highest quality Fula flutes. I’m pleased that my flutes are used by musicians and in studios around the world.

Please allow 2-3 weeks for production of your custom Fula flute.

My Fula flutes are handmade and unique. Each flute is adorned with cowrie shells at the head and body in the traditional style, and decorated with colorful fabrics (a combination of leather, suede, hemp, and Malian mud cloth).

My flutes are available in 4 Keys:

Key of A: our smallest flute, notes ranging from C4 to F6. Its higher range helps it be heard above drums, and its smaller size and closer tone-hole placement makes it friendlier for smaller hands.

Key of G: a nice mid-sized flute with great tone and playability. Note range is B4 in the lowest register to E6 in the upper.

Key of G: a larger flute with a mellow, rounder sound that sounds wonderful with kora, ngoni, guitar, etc. Notes range from A4 in the lowest register to E6 in the upper.

Key of F: our largest/deepest flute. It is wonderfully expressive and moody with a rich, mellow sound. Notes range from A4 in the lowest register to D6 in the upper. Note: Its larger size may make it a stretch for smaller hands.

In addition to your choice of key, each flute comes in two different tuning styles:

  • Standard (Western) tuned: This uses the standard western tuning that allows it to be played along with piano, guitar, and other Western instruments.

  • Traditional (Equidistant): this is the tuning found in West Africa. It uses an equidistant scale, meaning that the notes are equally spaced, giving it an authentic African sound. These flutes are meant to play traditional music, and sound great with instruments like balafon, ngoni, drums, etc.

To learn more about the difference between the two, check out my audio blog post on the Kassa Flutes website.
