Our 2022 Hummingbird Signature Flute in the key of 'G' minor is the newest design in our Hummingbird Signature Series. Our Signature Flutes are designed to be both concert quality musical instruments and functional artwork.
The design of the 2022 Hummingbird Series was inspired by the incredible hummingbirds that live and migrate through southern Arizona. The flute's engraving features a cactus flower design honoring the Arizona landscape, and celebrates the Paton Center For Hummingbirds located in our hometown of Patagonia Arizona, which is a part of the Tucson Audubon Society.
This flute is handcrafted from Aromatic Cedar and features Pink Paua Shell cabonchon inlays. We chose Aromatic Cedar for this flute because of its exceptional tonal qualities, which give the flute a clear, warm, balanced musical voice. We chose Abalone Shell inlay because of its vibrant iridescent color, which reminded us of the incredibly vibrant feather's of a hummingbird.
Our Signature Series flutes utilize a unique airflow design that provides exceptional responsiveness and player control, superior amplification, and makes them ideal for a wide range of musical styles.
The 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♯ / B♭. The dimensions of the flute is 22.25-inches (56 cm) in length with a 1-inch (2.5 cm) bore diameter.
