Our Merlin flute in the key of high 'C' minor is handcrafted from Aromatic Cedar, which is a softwood that gives the flute a warm, full musical voice. The Merlin 'C' is the highest octave flute that we make in the key of 'C'.
This flute 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'. This flute approximately 15.5 inches (39 cm) in length.
Because of it's length the Merlin 'C' is is very easy to play and makes a great accompaniment flute to any of our bass flutes in the key of 'C'.
This is a six-hole flute but we include a removeable leather hole cover for the third hole from the top of the flute (known as the sixth hole) which provides the option of playing it as a five hole flute, which can be easier for new players to learn to play.
