Measuring 20" in length, this unsplit Jacaranda branch flute has been accurately tuned with a clear, bright and sweet voice, to a 6 holed G minor pentatonic scale, playing three upper octave notes. Some of the bark has been left on, a nice visual and tactile contrast to the colors of the exposed and finely finished wood grain. A few wood crevices and knots have been inlaid with crushed turquoise stone. 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 nuggets and brass beads holds the bird to the nest.
