Measuring 16 1/2" in length, with four tuning/direction holes, this unsplit English Walnut (Juglans regia) branch flute has been "Verdi tuned", at A=432, to a sweet and soulful 6 holed minor pentatonic high Dm, modes 1&4, playing 3 second octave notes. The beautiful motled bark has been left on, sanded smooth and finely finished, with the bark fissures inlaid with a liberal amount of crushed Serpentine stone. As an 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 shoe, for its absorption qualities, and a drain hole has been designed into the air chamber. Deer leather lacing with Serpentine and brass beads secures the bird to its nest. The branch for this flute was sustainably gathered, with prayer, respect and gratitude, within the San Marcos Creek watershed of California.
