English Walnut Branch Flute in F#

sound sample of this flute



English Walnut trees along San Marcos Creek where the branch for this flute was gathered.

   The bark on this English Walnut (Juglans regia) unsplit branch flute has been sanded smooth
or completely down at the tone holes and other places, creating a nice contrast between it's dark brown under-layer color and the lighter, finely finished wood grain. 
Measuring 21" in length and concert tuned to a sweet midrange F# minor pentatonic, modes 1 & 4, it plays the gypsy scale and three upper octave notes.  Deer lacing with horn bone and brass beads holds the bird, with its rough bark and natural lichen preserved, to the nest.  The branch for this flute was gathered from a grove of wild English Walnut trees that grow along San Marcos Creek in San Marcos, CA, a short walk from the Dryad Flutes studio at Nottingham Center for the Arts.
