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 stone . ** Optional Extra – Please Select and option
Tigers Eye stone has been used to complement the beautifully figured and wavy grain of the Ancient Kauri wood. This stone was traditionally carried as an amulet to provide self-confidence, courage and strength.
About the finish
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, healthy for you and the environment.
About the tuning
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.
