I love Australian woods for flutes, so I couldn’t resist using this beautiful dark rich hardwood.
About the wood
Jarrah, once known as Swan River Mahogany, is from the Eucalypt species and most commonly found in South West Australia. This wood is dark red, and is generally very hard, and produces a bright clear tone.
About the stone
Turquoise is a sacred stone used for centuries by the Native American’s in all healing work. This is a stone of peace, serenity and tranquility. Southern Cross Flutes uses only natural undyed turquoise. In the Black Walnut Love Flutes range, this traditional stone is set into the flute in two places, with pyrogprahy marks around the stone representing the bright rays of the stars.
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.
