Our Red Tail Hawk Traditional Flute (440 Hz) is made in the musical key of 'G' minor, and it is handcrafted from domestic, sustainable Quilted Maple wood with a Black Walnut fetish.
Quilted Maple is a durable hardwood that well-suited for all types of outdoor activities like hiking and camping.
The hardwood qualities of Quilted Maple give the flute a bright, solid tonal voice that is crisp and clear on its own and when played with other instruments.
The flute is tuned in the key of "G" minor and can also be played in the relative major diatonic scale in the key of "A#"/"Bb".
This is a 6-hole flute but we provide a leather cover for the 3rd hole from the top (known as the 6th hole) to give the option of playing it as a 5-hole flute, which is simpler to play.
This flute is 23.5-inches (60 cm) in length.
