Bamboo Root End Key of D Native American Style Flute
Native Style flute made from a heavy walled, root end black bamboo in the key of D minor. This substantial and striking flute features a block of purpleheart and redwood burl, and inlaid nest and mouthpiece of purpleheart. It is wrapped twice with tan "sinew" wraps. The block is secured to the flute with tan and brown elk hide laces. A genuine abalone cabochon centers a hand burned morning star directly below the sound hole, and tan braided "sinew" bindings complete the look.
This is another really sweet playing flute with a solid voice and strong volume. It is very resonant and projects well. This flute has the unique look of a traditional Japanese shakuhachi flute with a root end. The hybrid construction incorporates an inlaid wood nest for a full sound of a wooden flute with the inherent vibrance of bamboo. The overall length of this flute is about 29".

*All Tree of Life Flutes are electronically 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.
**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.
