For 2024 we updated all the engraving designs on our high-tone Double Nova flute series, with a unique feather motif for each of them. On a double flute you play the melody on one side, while the other side provides the drone in the root note of the flute. Then the magic happens and it sounds like two people are playing at once!
This flute is the highest octave in the Pentatonic key of "B" minor and can also be played in the relative major diatonic scale in the key of "D". The dimensions for this flute are: 12.25-inches long (31 cm) by 2.25-inches wide (6 cm).
Our Double Nova Flutes are handcrafted from domestic Spanish Cedar, which is a softwood that gives them a warm, full musical voice. Double Flutes have two mouthpieces, which offers the opportunity for them to be played as either a double flute or a single flute instantly.
Odell's sound sample video features the 2022 Nova 'high B' design but sound quality of the 2024 Nova 'high B' is exactly the same as what is heard since the updated visual design has no impact on tonal quality.
