Our EarthTone Spirit Flute in the key of "A" minor is handcrafted from a single piece of Spanish Cedar, which is a softwood that gives the flute a warm firm musical voice.
Our EarthTone flute series is tuned to the frequency of 432 Hz versus the traditional tuning frequency of 440 Hz. Tuned to the key of "A" minor, it can also be played in the relative major diatonic scale in the key of "C" 432 Hz.
It is engraved with a geometric pattern that is thought to be the visual representation of the 432 Hz frequency on a CymaScope, and it is decorated with Rainbow Moonstone cabochon inlay.
Our Spirit Flute EarthTone 'A' flute is 14.0 inches (35.6 cm) in length.
The 8 Hz of tonal difference are seemingly slight in degree but can be perceptibly different when experiencing the feeling of the music we hear. Much like the subtle inflection of the human voice that can project a subtle variation in feelings, an instrument using a slight change in frequency can alter the feeling quality of the music being played.
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.
