Our high tone Kestrel flute in the key of E minor is handcrafted from domestic Black Walnut wood. It is hand-finished with non-toxic oils that seal the flute and give it a bright, clear, uplifting musical voice.
Higher toned flutes are ideal for musical collaborations like drum circles because their higher tones beautifully stands out against other lower toned instruments. And, its compact size makes it a very versatile flute that is ideal for traveling and hiking; it is 15-inches (38 cm) long.
This flute is also an excellent accompaniment to many of our other flutes: see all flutes in our Kestrel 'E' collection.
This is a 6-hole flute. We cover the 3rd hole from the top, known as the 6th hole, with a leather hole cover so you have the option to play it as a 5-hole flute (which tends to make the learning process easier) or as a 6-hole flute.
