Chinese flute or bamboo flute is a wonderful sounding device. In order to maintain a good state and enjoy it for many years to come, there are 12 things you need to know to take care of and maintain the flute.
The flute is made of bamboo, so it is more fragile than the western flute.
When the flute is exposed to very cold weather and then the temperature is set warmer, the bamboo may swell and crack.
However, usually better Dizis are those that are easy to crack because the bamboo is older and drier. The longer Dizis are, the more likely they are to crack.
If the flute breaks, rub the crack line with super glue. Dry the dry glue with fine sandpaper.
If the crack is large and deep, use a combination of shavings and glue to fill the crack. Otherwise, send Dizi to a professional for repair.
Dizi can still play and may even sound better, even if it has been cracked and fixed before.
However, if the crack is located at the pore of the membrane, it may be more difficult to fix because it is a unique "dimo". Due to the unevenness of the crack line, the sound may be affected.
If your flute has a copper adjustment joint, be careful when dividing the flute into 2 parts to store the flute. This can cause possible damage to the copper tuned connector, so the flute may not fit properly.
Use ' E Jiao' [scorpion fur] and water on the flute film. Do not use saliva.
Do not wash the flute with water as it may enter the bamboo and affect the tone of the instrument. After use, wipe off the excess saliva with a cloth and put the flute into the bag.
To keep the flute dry and clean, put a bag of silicone in your flute bag. If you want your flute to smell good, you can also try putting a bag of tea into your Dizi bag.
Most importantly, in order to keep the flute clean and personal hygiene, please use it alone.Click here!The China Secret.
