Buying fujara from other source than ?

Any two fujara flutes, even made by the same fujara maker, can and USUALLY ARE very different. One can be fabulous and the other really poor. To avoid buying bad fujara from otherwise great maker, try to follow these advises:

  1. When buying from an unknown source, always ask for an audio sample of the particular fujara you are actually buying:
    The quality of many fujara flutes sold in Slovakia is very bad - aimed at lower price and nice decorations, not the sound (tourist's fujara). There are apr. only 10 good fujara flute makers out of more than 100. Nonetheless, even the quality of the fujara flutes made by the best fujara makers usually varies greatly. So, with little bad luck, you can eventually end up with a bad fujara from a great maker (what can be worse, than a good fujara from an average maker).
    Audio sample of your particular fujara will surely help you to judge its real qualities (you can compare the audio sample to the ones presented at
  2. When buying fujara from other fujara maker than Folkart Slovakia, always choose whole fujara flute (main pipe is made from one long piece of wood).
    In the long run, you will be certainly more satisfied with a non-collapsible (traditional) fujara made from one piece of wood: The quality of tenon joints of collapsible fujara flutes made by other (traditional) fujara makers is usually not as good as should be, degrading thus overall quality of even otherwise good fujara (On contrary, Folkart Slovakia Fujara flute's joints are the best quality possible- no complaint over recent 5 years).
  3. Beware of anyone trying to persuade you that his/her fujara is the best. No one can tell his/her fujara is better than some other without directly comparing the particular fujara flutes, piece by piece, tone by tone, scatter by scatter, in the same environment (this is actually how Folkart Slovakia judges all our available fujara flutes).

After all, you can't go wrong choosing your fujara flute at We cooperate with many outstanding fujara makers from all around of Slovakia, and even from these we only select the best playing Fujara flutes.

For example, Overtone Rich Fujara flutes are produced by one particular maker (credits given upon purchase). All finished fujara flutes are play-tested and afterwards divided into several sound categories. The best ones, in "concert" or "excellent+" sound category, are presented and sold through our fujara flute gallery. The rest, approximately 30-40% of the whole production of Overtone Rich Fujara flutes (good, very good or excellent sound category), are then sold by the maker in other local folk shops. The difference between the best concert grade fujara and one in very good sound category is surprisingly big and is obvious on the first blow ...
