Sorry, this item has sold.

One of a kind Native Style flute in the key of ultra Low Bass E minor pentatonic from Tree of Life Designs. Crafted in a side blown hybrid style using bamboo and wood that gives the player the vibrant qualities of bamboo with the much fuller tone of a wooden flute.

Crafted from a root end of locally harvested, well seasoned and heat treated heavy walled timber bamboo from my local bamboo harvest and aged 10+ years, pigment-stained with artificial sinew bindings. This flute features a mouthpiece and inlaid nest of walnut, with a streamlined style block of walnut with a lacewood core, complimented with contrasting deer hide laces. The flute features a large red jasper stone cabochon inlaid just beneath the nest and serves as the center for my hand burned "morning star".

The voice is very low, strong, large, and resonant, and responsive with a very haunting tone that vibrates and resonates in the body. The look and sound of this flute will most definitely turn heads! The overall length is 44" and is a fairly easy reach for a lower keyed flute. The flute weighs 2 lb., 6 oz. Finished in food safe natural oils and wax finish for your safety and mine as well as the longevity of the flute.

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.

Sound clip for this beautiful flute:

*All Tree of Life Flutes are electronically tuned for accuracy. Each is individually voiced for strength and quality of the sound as well as playability. They feature a modest back pressure, play well softly but especially love to be pushed. Each flute I make comes with my concern for your satisfaction in mind. My workmanship and your satisfaction are guaranteed.

**Disclaimer: Some of the flutes that I make are Native American in Style only. My products are not Native made, I am not and make no claims to any Native heritage or Tribal affiliation.
