Native to Australia where its leaves provide the sole source of food for the Koala and where its trunk, when bored out by termites, is used by the Aboriginal Australians in the making of their traditional didgeridoos, Eucalyptus trees can also make high quality branch flutes--this one from the branch of a Lemon Eucalyptus, Corymbia citriodora. Much of her smooth bark has been sanded down, contrasting nicely with her finely finished wood grain. Measuring 21 1/2" in total length, with a 3/4" sound chamber bored out unsplit, her voice is a clear, spirited and resonant mid-range concert/recording quality Gm pentatonic scale, modes 1 & 4, playing three upper register notes. The branch's natural strength and beauty has been augmented with touches of green turquoise inlaid into several knots. Deer leather lacing with green turquoise nuggets and gold plated beads secures the bird to its nest. To help prevent wetout, the bird has been fitted with a cedar shoe, and a drain hole, covered by the lacing, has been designed into the air chamber. The branch for this flute was respectfully gathered from a Lemon Eucalyptus tree that had been cut down for a development ... living on now through this one-of-a-kind and very beautiful flute!
