Woods that have Soul
Choose from our premium characteristic woods, hand selected and cherished. Creating a positive future means taking care of the environment in the present. I endeavor to use woods that are plantation grown or from the wood-stacks of retired wood-workers.
Choosing how to finish a flute also has an environmental footprint. All Southern Cross Flutes are finished with a completely natural and chemical-free wood oil, made 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.

YOUR TOP 5 QUESTIONS ANSWERED
How do I know which flute will suit me best?
Buying a flute is a personal journey into discovering what sounds, looks, smells and feel are right for you. Check out our video guide, as well as the galleries, videos and audios here.
Can I add a gemstone/carving to the flute I want to buy?
Sure, you will see on most Made to Order flutes, that there is a gemstone selection. If you are having a custom made flute that we have helped design, then the choice of stones is yours. We order in all our gemstones, and can generally find what you seek.
How big are the finger holes / how far apart (Will I be able to play it)?
This differs from all flutes, and it’s not possible to give an easy answer as to whether you will be able to play it, even if the dimensions are listed.
The best idea is to contact me with the flute you have in mind, and I can send you the finger spacing and hole size for the particular flute.
Can I pay an initial deposit for my flute?
Yes, you will see on all Made to Order flutes that a deposit is payable. This locks your order into our schedule. The balance of the item is required before postage. All custom made flutes also require a deposit. Flutes that are In Stock do not accept deposits.
How long will it take for my flute to arrive?
Standard Airmail takes up to 10 working days, and is not tracked. Courier Post takes up to 6 working days, and is tracked. DHL takes up to 4 working days. These are estimates, and sometimes depending on your location (rural/remote island) you could expect longer. Sometimes items get caught up in your Customs department, which again lengthens delivery time.
