The Sankyo name can be divided into two Japanese words: SAN+KYO, where SAN means “three” and KYO which translates to “sound.” Thus, the “three sounds” is the foundation and represents the three founders and their pursuit of the essence of music: the intangible connections between craftsman–musician–audience. Sankyo flutes hold a secret within their walls. The extraordinary sound of a flute will come to life when it is played and loved by someone who matches it. That special connection of flute and flutist is the pride of Sankyo Flutes.

Whether played in an intimate setting or on a grand stage, Sankyo harmony flutes offer the fluidity, resonance and projection appreciated by soloists and ensemble players alike. Their alto flutes are world renowned for being powerful, responsive, and focused in tone, and the Bass flute model - until now not available in North America - is now the most anticipated flute model to be released in years. Experience the Sankyo sound for yourself!

The Sankyo alto and their new bass flute are known to be the standard in the industry for their amazing depth and radiance of color and workmanship. You must experience the Sankyo alto and bass!
