Heterocycla, a bamboo that can't be used to make flutes or fifes. However, by putting one hole in a section, you can make a very nice "Owl Hooter" that is very good training for children learning to play the fife. They soon learn the correct embouchure so that when the are given a fife they can play it immediately. These can be had for a few dollars plus postage. [$3 + ]
These pipes were made a couple of years ago from Rimu and Matai, two of the finest woods that NZ has to offer. They can be ordered from me. Delivery will be on the day I receive the payment of $US50 for each pipe ordered. This includes postage. Pitch can be nominated. A, Aflat, G, E, as well as C are available in this range.
