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.
Crafted from Spanish cedar, a softwood with a warm, resonant and full voice, it is sealed with non-toxic oils that give it a beautiful and durable finish. Spanish cedar has naturally-occurring dark lines in the wood grain which are often mistaken for cracks, what may look like a check line is actually a natural grain line in the wood. If your flute is crafted from Spanish cedar, please watch this video to help you distinguish between check lines and wood grain.
This flute is inlaid with turquoise cabochons which enhances its natural beauty as a functional piece of art.
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.
