Tuned to a G# minor pentatonic, modes 1 & 4, this Incense Cedar (Libocedrus decurrens) unsplit branch flute also plays the Gypsy scale as well as 4 upper octave notes. The reddish-brown bark has been left on creating a nice contrast with the finely finished wood grain and knots. The knots, unchecked because they were sealed while the branch was still green, are like the beautiful eyes of the tree and although not visible in the photos, they have a wonderful chatoyance. Measuring 20 1/4" in length, this flute is nicely tapered, from end to end. Elk lacing with horn bone and Jade beads holds the bird, that's been set with a Jade cabochon, to the nest. The bird has also been fitted with a Redwood shoe to aid against wet out. The branch for this one of a kind flute was gathered from a grove near Palomar Mountain State Park in California.
