Hand made in Ireland, this Native American style 6 hole flute is made from bamboo and plays in the key of C.
The bamboo is sanded and its nodes are removed to allow air flow, except for the top node. The cutting edge and sound hole are chiselled out and sanded. The decorative wolf is also hand carved, varnished, and tied with a strip of leather.
All the holes are sized and tuned to pitch before the flute is given a final sanding and a coat of beeswax for a completely smooth and protective finish. Then it is decorated with coloured thread.
The tone is mellow and accurately tuned in the pentatonic scale of traditional Native American flutes.
As each flute is hand-made, they are all of different lengths and have slightly different shapes.
