The Loon is part of an indigenous legend from the southern parts of the United States, which tells the story of the native flute's creation.
Our Loon Bird Head flute in the key of 'G' minor is handcrafted from domestic Aromatic Cedar, a softwood that gives the flute's musical voice a warm, resonant, full sound. It is inlaid with Turquoise cabochons to add to the natural beauty of the flute, and enhance the sculptural quality of the instrument.
The flute is tuned in the key of "G" minor but can also be played in the relative major diatonic scale in the key of "A#" major. This flute is 27.25 inches (69 cm) in length.
This flute makes a good accompaniment instrument to any of our flutes in the key of 'G' minor. 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.
