You are buying a Mandalorian Bes'bev (combat flute). Steel with weathering. Leather cord at end. Plays in the key of D.

History: A bes'bev was a traditional Mandalorian flute. Forged from beskar iron, a bes'bev was a combination of musical instrument and melee weapon. At one end, a bes'bev was cut to a sharp tip, similar to a quill stylus, and this bladed end made the instrument ideal for stabbing and drawing blood. A bes'bev was also hard and sturdy, and could be hefted as a club should the need arise. By the year 20 BBY, the Mandalorian soldier Wad'e Tay'haai had come into possession of an ancient bes'bev. Tay'haai's flute was colored the same dark violet as the plates of his Mandalorian armor, and he took to carrying the instrument on his belt. Tay'haai was a skilled bes'bev player, and knew how to play a number of songs including Vode An. In 19 BBY, at the home of his former Cuy'val Dar contemporary Kal Skirata, Tay'haai played for the Skirata clan, and encouraged Skirata's adopted son Bardan Jusik to give his bes'bev a try. During the reign of the Galactic Empire, the underground musical group known as Boba Fett and the Assassin Droids came into possession of a bes'bev. While on a promotional tour for the release of their first album, the group came to blows with their opening act, fellow band Dead Rebels. In the midst of Dead Rebels' rendition of "Death Star Diva," their lead singer was struck and rendered unconscious with the bes'bev by a member of Boba Fett and the Assassin Droids.

Beautiful piece. I’ve never been great at woodwinds, but with some practice I know it’ll play wonderfully. I’ve already made some great sounds on it. I couldn’t be happier with it.


Just got it today. Well made and when I can get it to make a sound, it sounds great. I just need practice.


I am a classically trained flautist, I have been playing the flute for 18 years now and am just about to graduate university with two degrees in music and education. So let me just say... This bes’bev has blown me away. I was not expecting to be able to play it so easily! It even has a beautiful three octave range. The finger placement is a bit uncomfortable at first, but after a small practice session I was more than able to use it with ease. The instrument itself is also stunning! It was definitely worth the 6 month wait time.


Dispatched on time and arrived quickly, the flute is beautifully crafted.


I like it. Plays pretty good (when I can get it to sound because I'm not proficient) looks cool and feels good in the hand.
