Soothing Native American Style flute. "Music has charms to soothe a savage breast". Yes, it's a real quote: Music has the power to enchant even the roughest of people. This proverb comes from the play The Mourning Bride by William Congreve, an English author of the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries.

You can check out samples of my music here and experience the soothing tranquility of the Native Flute.

A handy little amp with plenty of volume for the Native American Flute. The Micro Cube can run on A.C. or batteries. Has built in reverb or delay to give you that "Canyon Sound". I use it and swear by it.

Some of the features are:

  • Can be ordered with or without a great little lavaliere microphone that can attach to your flute or your shirt.
  • Ultra-compact amp with custom-designed speaker
  • Chromatic tuner built in
  • Eight DSP effects, including HEAVY OCTAVE and dedicated DELAY/REVERB with spring emulation
  • - i-CUBE LINK jack provides simple audio interfacing with Apple's iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch (interface cable included)
  • Free CUBE JAM app for iOS plays songs and minus-one jam tracks, and lets you record the MICRO CUBE GX's COSM amp tones along with music playback


I have a few more options. You do not need a PayPal account to make purchases (you can use your credit card numbers) with PayPal,

Here are a few alternatives.:

  • You can call me with payment information: 520-237-5312

Taken in my workshop with the help of my assistant, Clay.

One of my first tries using the Lichtenberg Process to decorate a Western Red F#m flute. This is done with very high voltage and is extremely dangerous. People have died doing this, so if you don't know what you're doing, don't even try, OK? However, the results can be very interesting.

  • I'm using a neon light transformer that puts out 8,000 volts.
  • I have a foot switch, sometimes called a "dead man's switch" to turn this home made device on and off.
  • I'm also using a Variac to control the input voltage and help regulate the burn.
  • Lots of videos out there on YouTube that tell you how to do this.
  • No, I'm not frying my hair.
  • Yes, I AM insane.

This video was taken in Big Sur..

We were traveling up Highway 1 and I decided to pull off the road and scramble out to a cliff overlooking the bay that you see in the background. I can't believe that happened over15 years ago. My, how time flies!

  • If you want to learn how to play a wide variety of songs, I suggest you check out my friend Allen Bruce Ray on Youtube He likes to play in tunnels over in South Korea, where he lives and teaches English

The terms "Native American Flute" and "Indian Flute" are used to describe the style of flutes and music that I create. It does not imply that the flutes and/or music are made by a member of a Native American tribe. Actually, I am, as most of you are, a "Native American". This is due to the fact that I, like so many of you, was actually born in America. I also have Cherokee blood in my ancestry. However, as a non "card carrying Indian", in order to comply with mandates set down by The Department of the Interior I have included this disclaimer.
