Our Merlin Signature Flute in the key of 'C' minor has a responsive, musical voice that is clear, crisp, and full. The flute is handcrafted from Quilted Maple with a Black Walnut fetish. Quilted Maple is a hardwood that gives the flute a tonal sound that is clear and balanced.
Because hardwoods are more durable than softwoods (such as Aromatic Cedar) they are well-suited for all types of outdoor activities such as hiking and camping.
The Merlin is very easy to play because of its smaller size so it is perfect for someone starting their musical journey with the native flute. It is also an ideal instrument for drum circles because of its high-tone voice, which stands out from the deeper toned drums.
The Merlin is the highest octave we make in the Pentatonic key of 'C' minor, and it can also be played in the Relative Major Diatonic scale in the key of 'E'. The Merlin 'C' is also a great accompaniment to any of our other key of 'C' minor flutes, such as our low-tone, Condor Bass 'C' flute.
Every Signature Flute is designed to be both a musical instrument as well as a piece of beautiful artwork. Our precision tuning insures that each Signature Flute is easily able to meet the requirements of any musician. Our Signature Series flutes utilize a unique airflow design that provides exceptional responsiveness and player control, superior amplification, and makes them ideal for a wide range of musical styles.
