Our double Nova Flutes are as easy to play as our single flutes, it just take a little more breath. On a double flute you play the melody on one side of the flute, using the six fingering holes, while the second flute plays the root note known as a drone side. The musical voice of our double flutes is magical because as one person plays, it sounds like two flutes playing together.
All our double flutes have two mouthpieces. This allows you to you can play the flute as both a single flute or as a double flute, by simultaneously playing the melody side and the drone side. No adjustments are needed to instantly transition between playing our double flutes in this way.
We handcraft two double flute design styles: our double Nova Flutes 'Side-By-Side' construction and our double Traditional Flute 'A-Frame' construction. Though the two design styles look really different, they are played in the same way and use very similar playing techniques.
