The Kassa Flute Co. specializes in hand-crafted West African Fulani-style flutes. Order your own custom flute here.

Browse through the available flute options below, and feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

Our high-quality flutes are made to order, and each flute is unique and beautiful. Each flute is adorned with cowrie shells at the head and body in the tradtional style, and decorated with colorful fabrics (a combination of leather, suede, hemp, canvas etc).

Flutes come in four different sizes (ranging from the smallest A♭ down to the largest flute in F), with the option of two tunings for each:

  • the “Traditional” tuning (equidistant, with no half tones), which is what you would find on a flute in West Africa. It is great for playing with balafon, bolon, ngoni, drums, etc, and for playing songs in the Fulani/Malinké tradition;
  • our standard “Western” tuning (equal temperament system), for playing with other Western-tuned instruments like guitar, kora, piano, etc.

The difference in tuning is subtle but noticeable. One or the other may be more suitable, depending on what music you are playing, and what other instruments you are playing with. (I have several of each!)

Payment and Shipping: We accept all major credit/debit cards, and ship worldwide.

Our Guarantee: If you are not satisfied with the quality of the flute for any reason, you can return it for a full refund within 30 days as long as it has not been damaged or altered (return shipping charges are to be paid by the customer).

Note on production time: For special order flutes, please allow 2-3 weeks (plus shipping time) for arrival.
