Ancient Kauri – Hijaz Drone Tuning – Various Keys
We absolutely love these flutes! The Hijaz Scale is wonderful, with the added mystical bonus of the Drone note, this is a crowd stopping flute.
This Hitzaz scale is commonly used in Greek and Arabic music; it is the scale that the Greek stringed instrument, the Bouzouki, is tuned to (it is also the scale that Flamenco is usually played in, sometimes called the ‘Spanish Gypsy scale’, though there are several of these!).
The left hand chamber, known as the drone, plays the fundamental, or root note, which is determined by the flute’s ‘key’. Numerous scales are playable on this flute, including the minor pentatonic scale, jazz scale, major scale, and gypsy scale.
This flute is crafted from Ancient Kauri wood, complemented with a lighter timber, called Kahikatea (New Zealand’s tallest tree).
