The Triple - key of "A" minor - Drone Flute is made from domestic, renewable Walnut, which is a hardwood. The flute is sealed with non-toxic oils which give it a clear, bright voice.
The Triple Flute is a very versatile instrument but is more challenging to play than the Double Flute.
The left side drone plays the root note of "A", the center flute has the 6-holes and plays the melody and the right side drone has three fingering holes that are closed with rubber plugs. This gives the option of which note(s) are played as the secondary drone. The plugs can be stored on the crossbar when not in use.
The flute has three mouthpieces so it can be played single, double or triple. Because these flutes take more breath and breath control they are recommended for experienced flute players. Our style is unique and generates good amplitude (volume) and the drone sides plays the low and high octaves easily.
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 a 6-hole flute, we cover the 3rd hole from the top of the flute (known as the 6th hole) with a rubber plug, giving the option to use it as a 6-hole or a 5-hole flute.
This flute is 19 inches long x 13 inches wide (48 cm long x 33 cm wide).
