Some of the very characteristic bark has been left on this unsplit Ponderosa Pine branch flute, except where the sound chamber wall has been sanded down at the tone holes, creating a nice contrast with the finely finished, exposed grain. All knots are unchecked and finely finished as well, each a window into the heart of the tree. Measuring 16 3/4", this branch fute is concert tuned to a mid range B minor and plays the pentatonic modes 1 & 4 as well as the gypsy scale, with four in tune, upper octave notes. American bison lacing with red horn and white bone beads holds the bird to the nest. This flute comes with it's own stand, made of Ponderosa Pine as well, along with a nice fleece drawstring bag and a "Playing and Caring for Your Dryad Flute" booklet.
