Handcrafted Flutes

Welcome to SpiritWinds


Welcome to SpiritWinds, the home of flutemaker Tony Richards.


My first passion is the Native American style flute, an instrument whose sound can only be described as the breath of Spirit. The journeys this instrument has taken me on have led to my making of other unique and beautiful wind instruments such as my own all Australian Outback Sax and bamboo flutes.

I am also in development in the field of recorder making, and am now available to service a wide range of recorders to restore their original sound and spirit.  

I hope you enjoy my website.
