Eucalyptus trees are used traditionally for the making of didgeridoos. They can also make beautiful branch flutes, this from a Lemon Eucalyptus Corymbia citriodora, the bark of the branch having been sanded smooth in natural patterns to contrast with the finely finished wood grain. Measuring 19¾" in length, she is clearly and sweetly voiced to a mid-range, concert/recording quality G#m pentatonic scale, modes 1 & 4, playing three upper register notes. As with all Dryad Flutes, the branch has been bored out unsplit, maintaning its natural strength and beauty, augmented with touches of abalone shell inlaid into a few small knots. Deer leather lacing secures the bird to her 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. The spirit of that tree lives on now through this beautiful, one of a kind branch flute.
