Our classic Merlin in the key of "C" minor is handcrafted from Birch, which is a hardwood that gives this flute a bright, clear tonal voice. Because of its smaller size it is a very easy to flute to play, and the Birch wood makes it a durable flute for outdoor use.
The Merlin is the highest octave we make in this key and it makes a great accompaniment to our bass-tone Condor "C" flute.
This is a 6-hole flute; we cover the 3rd hole from the top of the flute with a leather cover, which allows it to be a 5-hole flute that can be easily learned to play. This flute is approximately 17 inches (45 cm) in length.
Note - flute body designs may vary slightly.
