Some of the bark has been left on this unsplit Toyon (Heteromeles arbutifolia) branch flute, the deeper bark crevices inlaid
with crushed malachite.  The area at the tone holes has been sanded down and finely finished, exposing the beautiful color and grain
of the Toyon wood. 
Measuring 17 3/4" in length and concert tuned to A# minor pentatonic, modes 1 & 4, it plays the Gypsy scale
as well as 4 upper octave notes (as heard in the sound sample) when the top tone hole is half-holed.
  Elk lacing with malachite and horn bone beads holds the bird to the nest.  The branch for this one of a kind flute was gathered at the beautiful Descanso Gardens.
