As with all Dryad Flutes, this Northern California Black Walnut (Juglans hindsii) branch flute has been bored out intact, preserving the natural strength, beauty and characteristics of the branch, with no glue seam to ever fail. It has been accurately and resonantly tuned and voiced to a 6 holed minor pentatonic mid Am scale, with a few higher octave notes, as heard in the sound sample. The colorful bark has been left on, complete with numerous bit of lichen, well sealed and preserved to prevent separation from the wood. The wood itself has a beautiful spalting, as seen at both ends of the flute and on the bird. To help prevent wet-out (the build-up of breath condensation that can clog the windway of the flute) the bird has been fitted with a cedar shoe, for its moisture absorption qualities, and a drain hole has been designed into the air chamber. Elk leather lacing secures the bird to the nest.
