We've started to receive beautiful supply of Quilted Maple that inspired us to create one of our most popular flutes, the Sparrow Hawk in this special wood.
The Sparrow Hawk is made in the musical key of 'A' minor, and it is handcrafted from domestic, sustainable Quilted Maple. The key of 'A' is an ideal flute for first-time players because of its smaller size, which makes it easy for most anyone to play.
Quilted Maple is a durable hardwood that well-suited for all types of outdoor activities like hiking and camping. It has Black Walnut Sparrow Hawk fetish and dark brown leather flute ties.
The hardwood qualities of Quilted Maple give the flute a bright, solid tonal voice that sounds crisp and clear on its own or when played with other instruments. And, it is a great accompaniment to our other flute tones in the key of 'A' minor.
Our flutes in the key of 'A' minor can also be played in the relative major diatonic scale, in the key of 'C.'
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. The Sparrow Hawk is 19-inches (48 cm) in length.
Sound Sample Video Note
