  Measuring 27 1/4" in length, with 4 direction/tuning holes, this 6 holed, Arroyo Willow (Salix lasiolepis) unsplit branch flute, has been accurately tuned and sweetly voiced to an E minor pentatonic scale, playing two upper octave notes.  To help prevent wet-out, the bird has been fitted with a redwood shoe, for it's absorbant qualities and a drain hole, covered by the deer lacing, has been designed into the bottom of the air chamber.  The 5th and 6th hole have been offset, as requested, to accomodate the hands of the patron for whom this flute was made.  The branch for this flute was gathered sustainably, with respect and gratitude, along San Marcos Creek, in San Diego County, CA, amongst a wild grove of Arroyo Willow trees.   California Indians found many uses for the wonderful willow tree, including bows, baskets, shelters, clothing, fish traps and medicines derived from salicin in the willow's bark, the original aspirin.
