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 to a fine finish at the tone holes to decrease the thickness there, the bark fissures inlaid with crushed turquoise. Measuring 14 3/4" in length, with 4 tuning holes, it has been accurately tuned to a 6 holed A# minor pentatonic with a cheerfully bright and sweet voice, playing 3 upper octave notes. Elk lacing with horn bone and turquoise 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.
