Our EarthTone flute in the key of high "B" minor is the highest octave in the key of "B" that we make. It is easy to play making it an ideal instrument for first-time flute players. It is deeper in tone than the Merlin "C."
Made from domestic Walnut, which is a hard wood, the flute is sealed with non-toxic oils that give it a warm, resonant, clear voice. It also features a Rainbow Moonstone cabochon, the fetish symbolizes the circle of life, and it is engraved with a geometric pattern representing the 432Hz frequency.
This flute key is a great accompaniment for our Condor Bass "B" flute.
About Our EarthTone Flutes -
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). 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 aligned 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 we hear. Much like the subtle inflection of the human voice that can project a subtle variation in feelings, an instrument using a slight change in frequency can alter the feeling quality of the music being played.
This flute is 17.5 inches (44.45cm) long, and it is best suited for people with medium to larger hands.
