English Walnut trees along San Marcos Creek where the branch for this flute was gathered.
Measuring 17 3/4" in length, this unsplit English Walnut (Juglans regia) branch flute has been accurately tuned and sweetly voiced to a 6 holed A minor pentatonic scale, playing 3 upper octave notes. Most of the bark has been left on, speckled in places with yellow lichen. Knot holes and some bark fissures have been inlaid with crushed malschite. To aid against wet-out, 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 brass 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.
