This unsplit Camellia branch flute, which grew at the beautiful Descanso Gardens, has a wonderful, silky smooth finish to it and a sweet, stable clear voice to match. Some of the underlayer bark has been left on to contrast nicely with the exposed wood grain. Measuring 15" in length, it is accurately tuned to a high D minor pentatonic scale, modes 1 & 4, playing three upper octave notes as well as the Gypsy Scale. All knots have been inlaid with crushed malachite. Elk lacing, with brass and malachite beads holds the bird to the nest, the bird fitted with a redwood heartwood shoe to aid against wet-out.
