Our Migration Double Signature Flute in the key of 'A' minor is handcrafted from domestic Aromatic Cedar softwood, a premier tonal wood that creates an ideal balanced musical voice that is both clear on the high notes and warm and full on the low notes. We love double flutes because of how magical they are in the way that they can sound like two people playing the flute together.
All our Signature Series flutes utilize a unique airflow design that provides exceptional responsiveness and player control, superior amplification, which makes them ideal for a wide range of musical styles and players.
Tuned in the key of "A" minor, this flute can also be played in the relative major diatonic scale in the key of 'C.' The flute is 20 inches (51 cm) long and at the widest part it is 7 inches (18 cm.)
The Migration's design motif is inspired by the continual changes of the seasons, which in many ways are signaled by the various migrating bird populations here in Patagonia, Arizona. The flocks of migrating birds are spectacular when they take to the skies as the migrate in the winter and the spring.
The flute's engravings are inlaid with Turquoise cabochons, and the flute's body is meticulously shaped, finely sanded, hand-finished, and sealed with non-toxic Tung Oil, which is FDA approved for food contact.
Our Double Flutes have two mouthpieces so you can easily switch back and forth playing them as a double flute or a single flute. Our unique A-frame body style helps to generate good sound amplification when playing the flute.
Double flutes are as easy to play as the single flutes but they do take a little bit more breath. One side of flute is the melody side (the one with the fingering holes) and the other side of the flute is the drone side of the flute (the one without the fingering holes.) The drone side of the flute has the ability to play the low and high octave of the flute's specific musical key.
This flute also makes a great accompaniment flute for any of our other flutes in the key of “A” minor.
