Native style, six hole flute in the key of G minor. Hand crafted from rich, warm and nicely grained Pacific yew, with fully tenoned end caps of beautifully-contrasting spalted tamarind wood, with bloodwood beauty rings.
This striking looking flute is bored from a solid blank of Pacific yew wood. Topped with multiple, hand rubbed coats of 100% natural oil and wax finish for a gentle, warm glow. The flute also features my signature hand burned "morning star" with inlaid copper center below the sound hole. The classic style bird block is crafted from spalted tamarind with a bloodwood core. The block is secured with laces of contrasting deer hide leather and sits atop an inlaid spalted tamarind nest.
This is a beautifully classic looking flute with a vibrant voice. It plays with a rich and round tone, and projects well with great stage presence and excellent backpressure. The overall length is 20-1/2" with a 7/8" bore and weighs 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. All flutes are shipped Priority Mail with signature required and insurance.
