Osprey Head Flute innovations

Stunning Eagles Head Native American Flute

Recently we asked Bruce – our Master Flute Maker at Southern Cross Flutes – to flex his creative muscles and come up with a flute with a difference. He was pretty keen to try a new take on the classic Osprey Head Flute.

Using Western Rd Cedar for the main body of the flute, and Black Walnut for the ‘glove’ for the Osprey Head, mouthpiece and totem, Bruce crafted a sublime D minor Grandfather flute. The Black Walnut is a great wood for carving, with that essential mix of durable and pliable, as well as boasting gorgeous grains and sheen.
