Maple & Bocote Key of Low C Native American Style Flute
Hand crafted from a solid blank of modestly curly Red Maple. This six hole Native style flute in the key of C minor is capped with an exotic Bocote mouthpiece and bottom end cap. It has been line bored from one solid blank and finished with a combination of hand rubbed natural and food safe oils and waxes. The traditional "bird" block is crafted from bocote laminated to a curly figured maple core and rests on an inlaid maple nest. The block is secured with a lace of strong and supple "smoke" elk hide.
The flute is adorned with my signature, hand burned "morning star" centered by a colorful abalone cabochon inlaid directly above the playing holes. The overall length of the flute is 28" with a 1-1/4" bore. Better suited for larger hands the maximum spread between holes is 1-5/8 with the bottom playing hole about 20-1/2" from the mouth end. The voice is strong, full and resonant.

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. My workmanship and your satisfaction are guaranteed
