Our Spirit Flute 440 Hz Traditional Bass flute in the key 'B' minor is handcrafted from Spanish Cedar, a softwood that gives the flute a deep and rich musical voice, with warm high notes, and firm low notes. The versatility of this flute allow it to be played as a lead instrument, or as a bass undertone.
The short mouthpiece is convenient for travel, it provides ample back-pressure to accentuate clarity on the higher register notes and minimizes moisture buildup.
The 25.0 inches (63.5 cm) in length makes this one our our shortest bass flutes. High Spirit Flutes are sealed with non-toxic oils, which gives them a warm, resonant, and full voice.
We recommend this flute for those with larger hands or those with previous woodwind instrument experience.
It is a 6-hole flute. We cover the 3rd hole from the top of the flute (known as the 6th hole) with a leather tie, giving the option to use it as a 6-hole or a 5-hole flute.
Each flute (excluding our Pocket Flute & Eagle Bone Ocarina) automatically includes Odell's FREE 'How-To-Play' Instructional Materials which comes with: printed instructional booklet with fingering charts as well as an instructional DVD with both Odell's Beginner and Intermediate tutorial videos.
