Native style, six hole flute in the key of G minor. Hand crafted from highly figured curly quilted red maple, with a cherry burl trim ring at the mouth end. Zoom in on the photos to see the curl up close! The classic style bird block is crafted from cherry with a maple core, and sits atop an inlaid cherry nest. The block is secured with contrasting laces of deer hide leather. The flute also features my signature hand burned "morning star" with inlaid abalone center below the sound hole. Topped with multiple, hand rubbed coats of 100% natural oil and wax finish for a gentle, warm glow.
This is a striking looking flute with a large and traditional sounding voice. It plays effortlessly, with a very resonant, vibrant tone, and projects well with solid volume, stage presence, and excellent backpressure. The overall length is 21-1/2" with a 7/8" bore and fairly lightweight at 8 oz. It has an easy and comfortable reach for all players. The flute comes provided with a hand sewn fleece draw string bag for storage and protection. Free Shipping, discount at checkout! All flutes are shipped Priority Mail with signature required and insurance.

*All Tree of Life Flutes are electronically tuned for accuracy and finished with environmentally safe natural oil and wax finishes for your safety as well as mine. Each flute 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. Each is line bored from a premium solid wood blank, not split, and finished with natural oils for my protection as well as yours. 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.
