Inquire About This Flute_edited-11Love Flutes are melodious and versatile. These are the most commonly played flutes, and are crafted in a range of woods and keys

 

About the wood

Black Walnut, as a flute-wood, has a voice that is bright, clear, and strong, due to the hardness of the wood. The wood colour is typically a swirling combination of browns and blacks. This is highly figured wood, with knot inclusions and other wild grain patterns. Black Walnut is native to America and is grown in New Zealand. The wood we use is hand selected and milled by a friend in Matamata, who reserves a special selection for Southern Cross Flutes.

 

About the stone

Tigers Eye stone has been used to complement the beautifully figured and wavy grain of the Black Walnut 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.

 

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.
