Measuring 17 7/8" in length, this unsplit Aspen branch flute has been tuned with a clear and sweet voice to a 6 holed G# minor pentatonic scale, playing 2 upper octave notes. Some of the bark has been left on, a nice visual and tactile contrast to the beautiful colors of the exposed and finely finished wood grain. A few wood crevices have been inlaid with crushed malachite stone. To aid against wet-out (the build-up of breath condensation that can clog the windway of the flute) the bird has been fitted with a redwood heartwood shoe, for its absorption qualities, and a drain hole has been designed into the air chamber. Elk lacing with malachite and horn bone beads holds the bird to the nest.
