Love Flutes are our mid-octave (alto/tenor) flutes, being melodious and with warm tones. These easy to play and versatile flutes are the most commonly played Native American Style Flutes.
They come in the keys of A, G, F#, F, and E minor pentatonic. The A minor being the highest pitched flute in this range.
These flutes are mid-sized, and are crafted with the adult player in mind. The A and G minor keys are playable by all adults. Whereas the larger F# and E minor Love Flutes can take a bit of time to adjust to for small-handed players.
We take enormous care to select special and unique woods as this is one of the main reasons why our customers keep coming back for more Southern Cross Flutes. Check out our Woods page
All flutes are finished with a completely natural and chemical free wood oil, from plant oils and tree resins, produced 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. We’ve found this method the safest, to protect your Native American Flute, as well as being healthy for you and the environment.
The tuning of this flute makes it a highly versatile instrument. While it is precisely tune to the extended minor pentatonic scale, the playable range extends to one and a quarter octave, with a selection of up to 10 notes. Numerous scales are playable on this flute, including the minor pentatonic scale, jazz scale, major scale, and gypsy scale. This tuning is very common on the Native American Flute.
