Our Sparrow Hawk flute in the key of 'A' minor is one of our most popular flutes. It's easy to play making it ideal for any first time player. It is handcrafted from a single piece of sustainable, domestic Aromatic Cedar, a softwood with a warm, full, resonant, musical voice.
Our flutes are sealed with non-toxic oils to preserve and amplify the flutes' tonal qualities. This flute is tuned in the key of "A" minor but can also be played in the relative major diatonic scale in the key of "C". It is approximately 19-inches (48 cm) long.
Aromatic Cedar has a range of colors from ginger-orange to burgundy-red; it can also showcase sapwood which is a yellow color.
For over thirty years we have been crafting flutes from single pieces of Aromatic Cedar and, in the process, we have become adept at choosing planks with natural characteristics to turn into incredible sounding flutes, including those with many knots in the wood. We are experts at a technique called Turquoise Accent, which fills small, cosmetic wood knots in Aromatic Cedar.
Every flute we make is unique piece of functional art. When you choose one of our Aromatic Cedar flutes we guarantee its high-quality sound, its flawless craftmanship, and its one-of-a-kind features created by nature.
This is a six hole flute. We automatically include a leather hole cover with this flute, which can be used on the third hole from the top of the flute, as seen in the product's images. Covering the third hole from the top makes the flute easier to learn to play. The leather hole cover can easily be untied and removed, giving the flute player the option of playing the instrument as either a five hole flute or a six hole flute.
