We recently received a small batch of Knotty Madrone and decided that it would make a great limited edition flute for our Sparrow Hawk collection.
The Sparrow Hawk is one of our most popular flutes and it is made in the key of 'A' minor. It's a perfect flute for first-time players because of its size, which makes it easy for most anyone to play.
The Knotty Madrone Sparrow Hawk is handcrafted from Knotty Madrone, which is a durable, domestic sustainable hardwood that makes it great for all kinds of outdoor activities. It has Black Walnut Sparrow Hawk fetish and black leather flute ties.
The hardwood qualities of the Knotty Madrone also give the flute a bright, clear musical voice that sounds great on its own or when played with other instruments. And, it's a beautiful 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
The musical voice for hardwood flutes is very similar so we have shared our Walnut Sparrow Hawk video for the sound sample here. If for any reason you're unhappy with your purchase we have a guarantee policy that insures your satisfaction.
