Native style, six hole flute in the key of A minor. Hand crafted from a solid blank of quite striking, highly figured and lacy dark brown ziricote, a lovely hardwood from Central America. It is capped at the ends with ash with bloodwood rings. The bird/block is made from bloodwood with an ash core, in an inlaid nest of bloodwood. As with all of our flutes, the end cap is fully tenoned for strength and longevity.
The flute is finished with multiple, hand rubbed coats of 100% natural, solvent free oil and wax finish. The flute features my signature hand burned morning star with inlaid abalone center. The block is secured with a lace of black deer hide.
This streamlined, well balanced flute has a nice, loud voice that is warm, round, and full. It is a responsive player with great action and it projects well with volume. The overall length is 19" with a 1/2" bore. The flute comes provided with a hand sewn fleece draw string bag for storage and protection.

Technically 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. Each is line bored from a solid blank, not split, and finished with natural oils My workmanship and your satisfaction are guaranteed.
