Some of the beautiful underlayer bark and 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 15 3/4" in length, it is accurately tuned to a sweet and stable B minor pentatonic scale, playing three upper octave notes. All knot holes have been inlaid with crushed malachite. To aid against wet-out (the build-up of breath condensation that can clog the windway of the flute) the bird has been fitted with a redwood heartwood shoe, for its absorption qualities, and a drain hole has been designed into the air chamber. Elk lacing with malachite and red horn bone beads holds the bird to the nest.
