Forest Flutes are sprightly and play songs of the forests. They are great company on a forest hike, and – as the smallest of the flutes – fits snugly into your backpack.
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 well 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 over 45,000 years!
About the tuning
The tuning of this flute makes it a highly versatile instrument. While it is precisely tune to the 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, and jazz scale.
About the finish
All flutes are finished with a completely natural and chemical free wood oil, 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. 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.
