The High Spirits Kestrel in the key of "D" minor is made from domestic black walnut. It is sealed with non-toxic oils giving it a clear, bright voice.
This flute is the highest octave in the key of "D" we make and is a good accompaniment flute for the Condor Bass "D"
flute. The key of "D" is the primary key for Penny Whistles making this flute a very versatile instrument for playing various music styles. Its compact size makes it an ideal travel or hiking flute.
The higher toned flutes are ideal when used in drum circles and other instruments that tend to be loud. The higher pitch stands out above the lower toned instruments.
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 15 inches (38 cm) long.
