The Diatonic Spirit Flute in the key of “G” major has a deep soothing voice. Everyone is familiar with this scale because most modern music uses it, it’s the DO RE MI FA SO LA TI DO scale. This flute is well suited for musicians or people who play other flutes. It’s a frequently used scale and a fun way to expand your creative expression and that’s what exploring different scales is all about, finding new ways to play.
This is a Side Blown Spirit Flute. It’s unique because it plays sideways like a transverse flute (e.g. silver flutes) but it doesn’t require that you learn a technical mouth position to do so, to play this flute you simply blow directly into it. This design allows everyone to play a transverse flute right away, no musical experience necessary.
This is a larger flute with a lower voice than Spirit Flutes in higher keys of “C” or “D”. The holes are a bit further apart so we recommend it for those who have played instruments before or for beginners with larger hands.
Played alone this flute fills a space with life and joy, and it’s accurately tuned so it can be played along with other instruments too. It’s a wonderful accompaniment for all types of hand drums and stringed instruments like the guitar, ukulele, and cello. It also sounds lovely with piano.
Spirit Flutes are crafted from renewable and domestically grown walnut and sealed with non-toxic oils, giving them a warm, resonant, full voice. All Spirit Flutes are crafted in the United States and we are proud to be a part of a long tradition of American craftsmanship.
Included is a FREE instructional DVD, instructional book and fingering charts.
This flute is 19.4 inches (49 cm) long.
