Some of the beautiful underlayer bark and a touch of the rougher outer bark has been left on this unsplit Ponderosa Pine (Pinus ponderosa) branch flute, creating a nice contrast with the finely finished, exposed wood grain. Measuring 17 3/4" in length, it is accurately tuned to a sweet and stable A minor pentatonic scale, modes 1 & 4, playing three upper octave notes as well as the Gypsy Scale. All knots have been inlaid, at their center, with crushed turquoise. Elk lacing, with horn bone and turquoise beads holds the bird to the nest, the bird fitted with a redwood heartwood shoe to aid against wet-out.
