barna gabos irish bamboo flutes marroncito traditional music maker


My name is Barna Gabos, and I make flutes designed for traditional music (irish, breton, and other territories).

I love to work with different species of wood that make my instruments unique: Tigerwood, Blackwood, Mopane, Bamboo

I designed the very first Bamboo Pratten flute, which was a technical challenge but proved rewarding.

Feel free to check out my flutes and contact me if you have any request.

It's a cracker, it sounds very good, and it's very reasonably priced. I was impressed when I first got it.

Barna has mastered the challenges of machining and boring bamboo to meet flute specifications

I really enjoy this flute. It's lightweight, lively, loud, and easy blowing.

Daniel Chambo on Chiff & Fipple Forums

Congratulations for your work! I would not hesitate to order a new flute from you.


This flute begs for expressiveness and then lets you do it.

I got an amazing bamboo flute in F, it has been nothing but absolute joy since I've received it.
