Please note that these are illustrative photos, and that small aesthetic difference may arrise from the natural diversity of bamboo. Nevertheless, I do my best to make them as similar as possible!

This is a deep, exotic sounding transverse flute, with a middle eastern scale. This is a very intuitive melodic minor mode, that will always sound soothing, making it ideal for improvisation or meditative sessions.

It has a rich deep "airy" tone (~51 cm or 20 inches) and it's tuned to the key of low E (A=440Hz) in the Hijaz kar scale, or spanish gypsy.

It will play well and clearly in 2 octaves.

Please note that this flute will require you to use your pinky finger on the bottom hole. Since this is a relatively big flute, it might demand a considerable stretching on your fingers, so I wouldn't consider it a beginners' flute.

This flute was naturally cured by the shade and was lightly fire treated afterwards. It has ethnic bindings with waxed thread.

The interior was protected with sweet almonds oil and the exterior with a solution of beeswax and sunflower oil.
