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, sanded down at the tone holes to expose the finely finished wood grain. Most of the deep bark fissures have been inlaid with crushed jet black , providing a neutral color background to the striking orange and yellow lichen that has been well preserved on this branch. Measuring 19 5/8" in length, with 4 tuning holes, it has been accurately tuned to an A# minor pentatonic, modes 1 & 4 with a cheerfully bright and sweet voice, playing the Gypsy scale as well as 3 upper octave notes. Elk lacing with horn bone and brass beads holds the bird to the nest, the bird fitted with a redwood heartwood 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.
