Measuring 27 1/2" in length with four direction holes and a 1" diameter sound chamber, this unsplit California Walnut (Juglans californica) branch flute has been accurately tuned, clearly and soulfully voiced to a 6 holed minor pentatonic low D scale, playing an extended range of 6 upper octave notes, with a controllable warble on the fundamental--as heard in the sound sample. Much of the beautiful walnut wood grain has been exposed and finely finished, contrasting nicely with the patches of bark inclusion. All knot holes have been inlaid with crushed turquoise. To help prevent 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, covered by the deer lacing that holds the bird to the nest. The branch for this flute was gathered sustainably, with prayer and gratitude, along the San Marcos Creek watershed in San Diego County, California.
