English Walnut trees along San Marcos Creek where the branch for this flute was gathered.
The bark has been left on the north end of this unsplit English Walnut (Juglans regia) branch flute,
transitioning to the smooth underlayer and to the exposed wood grain at the tone holes. Measuring 19 3/4"
in length and concert tuned to a G minor pentatonic, modes 1 & 4, it plays the Gypsy scale as well as 3 upper octave
notes when the top (sixth) hole is half-holed. The whole flute is finely finished and the bark crevices and all knot
holes have been inlaid with crushed malachite stone. Deer lacing with malachite and horn bone beads holds the bird
to the nest. The branch for this flute was gathered along San Marcos Creek, in San Diego County, CA
amongst a wild grove of English Walnut trees.
