The Sparrow Hawk - key of "A" minor is one of our most popular flutes. It is easy to play and is ideal for first time flute players and those with smaller hands
The body of the flute is created from madrone and the fetish is crafted from black walnut. Both are domestic hardwoods. The flute is sealed with non-toxic oils that give it a beautiful finish and add to its clear, bright voice, especially on the high notes. An added advantage of hardwood flutes is that they are durable which makes them ideal for traveling or outdoor activities like hiking and backpacking.
It is a 6-hole flute but we cover the 3rd hole down from the top of the flute (known as the 6th hole) with a removable leather tie to give you the option of playing it as a 6-hole flute (easier for beginners) or a 5-hole flute.
Because of its range of notes this flute can also play the relative major diatonic scale in the key of "C".This flute is 19 inches (48 cm) long
