Love Flute – Dark Ancient Kauri – Key of E Minor

USD $492

Here is something really special.

This flute is made from a rare variety of Ancient Kauri. This wood, in the course of its ~40,000 year underground slumber, has absorbed tannins from a river. This has darkened the timer considerably, as you can see!

Holding this archaic wood is awe-inspiring, and I find the songs that come through me with these ancient timbers really special. As you can hear in our audio recording below, this flute has a remarkably clear and potent voice.

We had this stashed away for a special project, and one day confused it with another wood and made this. As Bob Ross said, “We don’t make mistakes here. We just have happy little accidents.”

You don’t get much more unique than this. Have a listen!

  • About the wood

    As a flute wood, Ancient Kauri has a voice that is rich and sweet, giving it great acoustical properties for the lower as we ll as the higher pitched notes. It’s a fantastic Native American Flute wood, ancient and beautiful. Typically Ancient Kauri is darker brown in colour with a depth of grain that holds shimmering highlights within. This wood has been recovered from swamps in the far north of New Zealand/Aotearoa, where it’s been naturally preserved for between 10,000 to 40,000 years!

  • These flutes are mid-sized, and are crafted with the adult player in mind. The A and G minor Love Flutes 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.

    You can also hear the Major Scale and Hijaz Scaled Flutes in this playlist.
