About the 432 Hz Earthtone© "G" flute
The 432 Hz EarthTone "G" flute is tuned in the key of "G" minor and is handcrafted from Walnut, a beautiful hard wood with a crisp clear voice. It is ideal for beginners with medium to large hands. New players with smaller hands may want to consider one of our 432 Hz EarthTone "A" Flute Package instead.
It features Rainbow Moonstone inlaid cabochons, a fetish symbolizing the circle of life, and is engraved with a geometric pattern representing the 432Hz frequency as seen through a Cymascope (more info about this below).
It is a 6-hole flute on which we cover the 3rd hole [from the top] with a leather tie. This allows the player to choose to play it as either a 6-hole flute or as a 5-hole flute which is better for beginners because it takes less dexterity.
It is accurately tuned to the key of "G" minor but can also be played in the relative major diatonic scale in the key of "A#" / "Bb".
EarthTone© Flutes and the 432Hz Frequency Tuning
In the world of music there has been a revival of tuning instruments to lower frequencies of sound vibration. Until recently, most musical instruments have been tuned so that the “A” note (of the middle octave on a piano) is tuned to 440Hz (Hz = cycles per second) and all the other notes are tuned relative to that. This is known as Concert Pitch and was established as a standard at the beginning of the 20th century.
Our EarthTone© wooden flutes use a 432Hz frequency for the “A” note and all other notes are tuned accordingly. When played alongside flutes that are tuned to the frequency of 440Hz, the 432Hz tonal difference is very subtle. The 8Hz of tonal difference are seemingly slight in degree but can be perceptibly different when experiencing the feeling of the music. Much like how subtle inflections of the human voice can project noticeable differences in feelings, an instrument using a slight change in frequency can noticeably alter the feeling of the music being played. When the vibration is different the feeling is different.
So why a different vibration?
The 432 Hz tuning has been said to have "good vibes" or good vibrations, a phrase used to describe a positive experience that leaves a person feeling good. Vibrations have a great influence on us and it can be said that all parts of this physical world are filled with vibrations. On a daily basis, they are not easily seen but rather felt. When listening to music, a dialog or just having normal conversations the intensity or calmness of the sound vibration has an effect on the way we perceive or feel the interaction. Aggressive music can agitate us, a calm voice can sooth us. These are all aspects of sound vibration and they can be measured as well as visualized. With this in mind, many people say they experience a different kind of calm feeling when listening to or playing instruments tuned to 432 Hz. However, the claims and potential benefits have not all be scientifically proven. We suggest letting your personal experience be the deciding factor in your choice of tuning.
The geometric engraving and the Cymascope.
The EarthTone© "G" flute is engraved with a geometric pattern representing the 432Hz frequency as seen through a Cymascope, an instrument that can project the physical geometric patterns of any specific vibration. By connecting the instrument to a vessel of liquid or a solid medium such as sand on a vibrating plate, the vibration of a specific frequency will create consistent unique geometric shapes. If you are interested in learning more about the Cymascope or seeing it in action perform an Internet for “Cymascope 432Hz”, you will find a lot of information.
The EarthTone© "G" flute is tuned in the key of "G" minor and can also be played in the relative major diatonic scale in the key of "A#/Bb". It is a 6-hole flute on which we cover the 3rd hole from the top of the flute (known as the 6th hole) with a leather tie, giving the option to play it as a 6-hole or a 5-hole flute.
This wooden flute is 23.5 inches (60 cm) long.
