The High Spirits Golden Eagle in the key of "F#" minor has a haunting, ethereal voice that touches the heart and spirit. It is recommended for those that have experience playing the Native flute or other wind instruments.
The body of the flute is created from madrone and the fetish is crafted from black walnut. Both are domestic hardwoods. The flute is sealed with non-toxic oils that give it a beautiful finish and add to its clear, bright voice, especially on the high notes. An added advantage of hardwood flutes is that they are durable which makes them ideal for traveling or outdoor activities like hiking and backpacking. This flute is deeper in tone than our Red Tail Hawk flute.
It is a 6-hole flute but we cover the 3rd hole down from the top of the flute (known as the 6th hole) with a removable leather tie to give you the option of playing it as a 6-hole flute (easier for beginners) or a 5-hole flute.
Because of its range of notes this flute can also play a relative major diatonic scale in the key of "A".
This flute is 25 inches (64 cm) long. It is recommended for people with medium to large hands.
