Measuring 20 1/4" in length, with four direction holes, this intact, unsplit English Walnut (Juglans regia) branch flute has been accurately tuned and clearly voiced to a 6 holed mid-range G# minor pentatonic scale, playing 4 upper octave notes. Most of the bark has been left on, taken down at the 5th and 6th tone holes to decrease the wall thickness there, for better tuning and responsiveness. Bark fissures and knot holes have been inlayed with crushed Turquoise and the whole branch has been finely finished and sealed, insuring that the bark will remain tight to the wood grain over the long life of this beautiful flute. To help prevent wet-out, the bird has been fitted with a redwood shoe, for its absorption qualities, and a drain hole has been designed into the air chamber. Deer lacing with Turquoise and carved bone beads secures the bird to the nest. The branch for this flute was sustainably gathered, with prayer, respect and gratitude, within the San Marcos Creek watershed of California.
