Tuned to a mid range F#m, this solid bore Big Leaf Maple (Acer macrophyllum) driftwood branch flute has been seasoned by the sea and sun, probably finding its way down the wild Smith River that flows through some of the last old growth forests of the Pacific Northwest, to its resting place on the beautiful northern California beach at Point St. George, where it was respectfully and gratefully gathered.  Measuring 23" in length, with one 1/2" tunning hole, the sound chamber bore has been tapered from about 1" at the sound hole to  13/16" at the foot.  This amazing flute plays a few very high upper register notes, as heard in the sound sample.  Crushed abalone shell has been inlaid into 12 of the branch's knots and into the crevice of the bird.  The bird has been fitted with a cedar shoe and a drain hole has been designed into the air chamber to help prevent wet-out.  Deer leather lacing, with abalone beads secures the bird to her nest.  A beautiful flute pouch, custom designed for this flute, has been lovingly made by Sabine.
