Measuring 15 1/2" in length, the beautifully patterned underlayer of bark has been exposed and sanded smooth on this unsplitt Ponderosa Pine (Pinus ponderosa) branch flute. Accurately tuned to a sweet and spirited E minor pentatonic scale, it plays three upper octave tones and a controllable warble on the fundamental--very rare on a high pitched flute like this! All knot holes and a couple small checks in the foot of the flute have been inlaid with crushed malachite. 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. Deer lacing with malachite and brass beads holds the bird to the nest.
