The Double Kestrel in the key of "D" is made from Walnut, which is a hardwood. The flute is sealed with non-toxic oils which give it a clear, bright voice.
The Double Flutes are as easy to play as the Single Flutes, they take just a little bit more breath. With a double flute you play the melody on one side and the other side provides the drone in the root note of the flute - it sounds like two people are playing. Our Double Flutes have two mouthpieces so you can play it as a double flute or a single flute instantly, without adjustments.
This flute is 15-inches long.
Our double flute design is unique and generates good amplitude (volume) with the drone-side easily playing both the low and high octaves. It is a good accompaniment for the Condor Bass "D" flute.
The flute is tuned in the key of "D" minor and can also be played in the relative major diatonic scale in the key of "F".
This 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. It is easier to learn on a 5-hole flute.
