One of a kind Native Style flute in the key of E minor pentatonic from Tree of Life Designs. Crafted in a hybrid style using bamboo and wood that gives the player the vibrant qualities of bamboo with the much fuller tone of a wooden flute
This lovely bamboo flute is crafted from a solid blank of locally harvested, well seasoned and heat-treated bamboo. This flute features a mouthpiece and inlaid nest of beautiful figured bootee wood .The fetish block is crafted from bootee with a mahogany core. An abalone cabochon is inlaid just beneath the nest and serves as the center for my hand burned "morning star".
It sports light tan binding wraps from strong, natural waxed nylon "sinew" cord and uses wand and brown deer hide lacings to secure the block. Finished in food safe natural oils and wax finish for your safety and mine as well as the longevity of the flute. Tuned to a mid E minor pentatonic scale the voice is strong, quite resonant and responsive with a haunting tone, and also has great action for fast playing as well as slow, meditative work. This is a fun flute to play and will make a great performer, as well as being a showpiece. The overall length is 26-1/2".
