Grandfather Flutes are sonorous and deep, bass flutes to slow you down and soften the soul. Physically the largest flutes in the Southern Cross Flutes range, the Grandfather Flutes are designed to sit closer to the body, enabling easy reach to the finger holes. Additionally, the finger holes on Grandfather Flutes are offset to create an ergonomic fit for the fingers.
About the wood
Black Walnut, as a flute-wood, has a voice that is bright, clear, and strong, due to the hardness of the wood. The wood colour is typically a swirling combination of browns and blacks. This is highly figured wood, with knot inclusions and other wild grain patterns. Black Walnut is native to America and is grown in New Zealand. The wood we use is hand selected and milled by a friend in Matamata, who reserves a special selection for Southern Cross Flutes.
The totem and nest of this flute features Ancient Kauri, a New Zealand timber that has resided in the swamps for 40,000 years.
About the stone
Tiger’s Eye is a crystal with amazing bags of yellow gold through it. Tiger’s Eye blends in beautifully with the Black Walnut wood. It stimulates taking action, and helps you to make decisions with discernment and understanding, and unclouded by your emotions.
About the finish
All flutes are finished with a completely natural and chemical free wood oil, from plant oils and tree resins, by a local New Zealand company. This blend of ingredients protects and nourishes the flute, as well as showcasing the unique grain of the wood. The final touch is a good ol’ buff with Carnauba wax, which helps to wick away moisture from the air channel while creating a durable and lustrous finish.
This flute harmonizes best with:
- The Forest Flute D minor, Love Flute A minor, Drone Flute A minor,
- Grandfather Flutes sound amazing accompanied with a Shamanic Hand Drum
