The bark has been left on this unsplit Coast Live Oak (Quercus agrifolia) branch flute, sanded smooth at the tone holes and where the bark crevices have been inlaid with crushed turquoise. In other areas the characteristic rough bark has been preserved. A few turquoise nuggets have been set into knots and in the tip of the forked branch bird. Elk lacing with turquoise and horn bone beads holds the bird to the nest. The voice of this oak flute is very unique, achieving an amazing 6 notes above the octave, as heard in the sound sample above. The flute measures 18 3/4" in length and the branch
was gathered from the beautiful Descanso Gardens in La Cañada Flintridge, CA.
