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 pocket or backpack.
The G minor pentatonic Forest Flute is pocket sized, has six easy-to-cover finger holes, and sings a bright and clear song that’s slightly deeper than the A minor Forest Flute. It is more versatile than the A minor Forest Flute as it offers a wider range of playing notes due to an additional finger hole.
This flute is also very popular with young children due to the ease of playing, durable wood, and non-toxic oil.
About the wood
The pohutukawa is one of twelve Metrosideros species endemic to New Zealand. Renowned for its vibrant colour and its ability to survive even perched on rocky, precarious cliffs, it has found an important place in New Zealand culture for its strength and beauty and is regarded as a chiefly tree (rākau rangatira) by Māori. The blossom of the tree is called kahika.
About the stone
Rose quartz is often called the “Love Stone.” It’s energetic hallmark is that of unconditional love that opens the heart chakra. This makes rose quartz a stone for every type of love: self-love, family, platonic, romantic, and unconditional.
This stone is also used to raise self-esteem and a strong sense of self-worth. Its loving energies teach us to apply this love to ourselves and thereby find ourselves more worthy.
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.
