English Walnut trees along San Marcos Creek where the branch for this flute was gathered.


  Measuring 22 1/4" in length, with 4 direction holes, this unsplit English Walnut (Juglans regia) branch flute has been accurately tuned and sweetly voiced to a 6 holed F# minor pentatonic scale, playing 4 in tune upper octave notes.  Much of the bark has been left on, from the rougher outer layer to the beautifully patterned inner layer, sanded down at the tone holes and other areas to expose and contrast with the finely finished wood grain.  Bark fissures and knot holes have been inlaid with crushed turquoise.  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 turquoise and horn bone beads holds the bird to the nest.  The branch for this flute was sustainably gathered, with love, respect and gratitude, along San Marcos Creek, in San Diego County, California, amongst a wild grove of English Walnut trees.
