English Walnut trees along San Marcos Creek where the branch for this flute was gathered.
Much of the bark has been left on this unsplit English Walnut (Juglans regia) branch flute, contrasting nicely with the exposed wood grain on top from the bird to the foot. Bark fissures have been inlaid with crushed turquoise, giving the impression of blue lichen growing on the branch. Measuring 19 5/8" in length, it is Verdi tuned (A=432) to a G# minor pentatonic, modes 1 & 4 with a cheerfully bright and sweet voice, playing two upper octave notes. Deer lacing with turquoise and horn bone beads holds the bird to the nest, the bird fitted with a redwood shoe to aid against wetout. The branch for this flute was sustainably gathered, with love, respect and gratitude, along San Marcos Creek, in San Diego County, CA amongst a wild grove of English Walnut trees.
