The High Spirits Condor Bass in the key of "C" minor is the beginning of our deeper Bass Series. The resonant low tones vibrate through the wood and give this instrument a haunting voice. We recommend that you have some experience playing the Native Flute or other wind instruments.
Although several other notes are available, this flute is best described as a single octave instrument.
It is a 6-hole flute, we cover the 3rd hole from the top of the flute (known as the 6th hole) with a leather tie, giving the option to use it as a 6-hole or a 5-hole flute.
This flute is 27.25 inches (69 cm) long.
Crafted from Spanish cedar, a soft wood, the flute is sealed with non-toxic oils which give it a warm, resonant and full voice. What may look like a check line is actually a natural grain line in the wood of your flute. Spanish cedar has naturally-occurring dark lines in the grain which are often mistaken for cracks. If your flute is crafted out of Spanish cedar, please watch this video to help you distinguish between check lines and wood grain.
Each flute (excluding our Pocket Flute & Eagle Bone Ocarina) automatically includes Odell's FREE 'How-To-Play' Instructional Materials which comes with: printed instructional booklet with fingering charts as well as an instructional DVD with both Odell's Beginner and Intermediate tutorial videos.
