Backpacker Cedar Series Native American Style Flute
Introducing or ALL NEW "Backpacker" Series Native Style Flute. Our goal was to produce a fine playing instrument that was reasonably priced, light weight, rugged, easy to carry and ideal for the beginner and experienced player alike. We feel that we have done that nicely with this new flute series. Currently available at a special introductory price in your choice of Key. Select from either A#, A or G. These are all six hole flutes and come with an easily removed leather band to cover hole four to help those that are new to the flute.
Starting with a select piece of colorful eastern red cedar, the backpacker features a unique textured surface and an inlaid stainless steel nest plate that is secured in place for ease of adjustment. And, just like all of our custom flutes, the "Backpacker" is line bored from a solid blank. Further, each backpacker flute is individually hand crafted, tuned and finished then topped with multiple coats of hand rubbed, food safe, plant based oils and waxes. Your flute will be as rugged and durable as it is beautiful.
The bird/block is carved from either mahogany, red or yellow cedar depending on availability and secured with a deer hide lace. As a learning aid for the beginner a second lace is included to cover hole 4. Each backpacker flute comes with a hand sewn fleece bag for storage and protection.

*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.
