Here in Patagonia, Arizona we are surrounded by ranches and the legacy of the horse which has had a dramatic impact in developing the West. We created the Mustang Flute to honor the spirit of the horse and the services they have provided.
Today, these noble creatures are still an important part of our lives and help nurture our connection to nature. While modern technology has replaced the everyday need for horses, our connection to these magnificent animals is still strong. It is comforting and heartwarming to see horses graze in a meadow or strolling down a trail.
Although most of us do not see them, mustangs (wild horses) still roam the plains and countryside symbolizing the spirit of freedom the USA was built on.
This Signature Flute has wonderfully clear high notes and warm full low notes. Very little breath is needed to play the flute allowing easy control over the notes and playing techniques. It has strong amplitude and is very responsive giving the player an intimate feel for the notes being played. We have committed to making only one hundred of these Mustang Signature Flute designs in the key of "A".
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". It is crafted from aromatic cedar and hand polished to a fine finish with several layers of non-toxic oils.
The Mustang is embellished with Native hand-made sterling silver settings inlayed with turquoise cabochons.
Aromatic cedar is an exceptional tonal wood, which gives the flute a balanced voice that has both clarity and warmth. The flute is accurately tuned so it can easily be accompanied by other instruments.
This flute is 20 inches (51 cm) long.
