Native Style flute made from a heavy walled, root end black bamboo in the key of F#m. Black bamboo (Phyllostachys nigra) is a striking looking bamboo, and the gorgeous "fire" pattern is natural to this flute, and not created. Features an inlaid nest and mouthpiece from walnut, with a classic style block of walnut with a birch core, complimented with chocolate brown deer hide laces. The flute features a genuine abalone cabochon in my signature hand burned "morning star." It is finished with many coats of a hand rubbed, natural oil and wax finish.
This is one sweet player that responds nicely to trills, pops and articulation. Solid and resonant voice with a strong volume. With it's natural color variations and fiery patterning, this is one stunning looking and sounding flute, perfect for a performer looking for a great stage presence. Unique look of a traditional Japanese shakuhachi flute with a hybrid construction that incorporates an inlaid wood nest for a full sound of a wooden flute with vibrance of bamboo. This flute is 23-1/2" in length and weighs 12 oz. The flute comes provided with a hand sewn fleece draw string bag for storage and protection. All flutes are shipped Priority Mail with signature required and insurance.
