ALL SALES FINAL - SOUND QUALITY GUARANTEED
Our Preservation Collection reflects our commitment to sustainability, respect for the Earth's natural resources, and the woodworking process. Preservation Collection flutes meet the exact same sound quality standards as all our other flutes at a deep discount! Their difference is that they may have design differences, adaptations, unique woods, limited quantities on one-of-a-kind flutes, slight cosmetic imperfections, minor shaping inconsistencies, which do not detract from the flute's purpose in any way. Each Preservation Collection flute remains a high-quality, American handcrafted, woodwind instrument. As with all of our flutes, we stand by our musical instrument quality reputation, and sound quality is always guaranteed. This Preservation Collection flute does not include our third hole leather cover. This does not affect the flutes functionality, sound quality, or musicality in any way.
Our EarthTone wooden flutes use a 432Hz frequency for the “A” note and all other notes are aligned accordingly. When played alongside flutes that are tuned to the frequency of 440Hz, the 432Hz tonal difference is very subtle.
The 8Hz of tonal difference are seemingly slight in degree but can be perceptibly different when experiencing the feeling of the music we hear.
Much like the subtle inflection of the human voice that can project a subtle variation in feelings, an instrument using a slight change in frequency can alter the feeling quality of the music being played.
The flute is tuned in the key of "A" minor and can also be played in the relative major diatonic scale in the key of "C".
The flute features Rainbow Moonstone inlaid cabochons, a fetish symbolizing the circle of life, and it is engraved with a geometric pattern representing the 432Hz frequency.
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.
In the world of music there has been a revival of tuning instruments to lower frequencies of sound vibration. Until recently, most musical instruments have been tuned so that the “A” note (of the middle octave on a piano) is tuned to 440Hz (Hz = cycles per second). This is known as Concert Pitch and was established as a standard at the beginning of the 20th century.
