The High Spirits Golden Eagle in the key of "F♯" minor has a haunting, ethereal voice that touches the heart and spirit.
Crafted from domestic walnut, a hardwood, it is sealed with non-toxic oils which give it a clear, bright voice especially on the high notes. It is inlaid with turquoise cabochons which add to the natural beauty of the wooden flute and enhance the functional art quality of the instrument.
An added advantage to this hardwood is durability for outdoor use such as hiking and backpacking. It is deeper in tone than the Red Tail Hawk.
The flute is tuned in the key of "F♯" minor and it can also be played in the relative major diatonic scale in the key of "A".
This is a six hole flute. We automatically include a leather hole cover with this flute, which can be used on the third hole from the top of the flute, as seen in the product's images. Covering the third hole from the top makes the flute easier to learn to play. The leather hole cover can easily be untied and removed, giving the flute player the option of playing the instrument as either a five hole flute or a six hole flute.
This flute is 22.5 inches (57.15 cm) long.
