Our Salamander Signature flute is handcrafted from Quilted Maple wood. The colors, striping, and texture of the Quilted Maple inspired the design of this flute since it visually reminded us of our local amphibian, the Sonoran Tiger Salamander.
Much like the wood, the Tiger Salamander is both rare and beautiful. It also turns out to be great, tonal wood, which means that it has clear, crisp musical voice for our flutes.
For the Salamander's fetish we created a dark red, Walnut wood fetish whose design and color accentuates, contrasts, and compliments the Quilted Maple body of the flute.
And, as with all special wood species, each of the Salamander flutes will have a unique Quilted Maple grain pattern that is similar but different from its fellow Signature flutes of the same wood.
Every Signature Flute is designed to be both a musical instrument as well as a piece of beautiful artwork. Our precision tuning insures that each Signature Flute is easily able to meet the requirements of any musician.
Our Signature Series flutes utilize a unique airflow design that provides exceptional responsiveness and player control, superior amplification, and makes them ideal for a wide range of musical styles.
