Pocket Flute in HIGH A - Aromatic Cedar 6 HoleHS601C
The High Spirits Pocket Flute is created from Aromatic Cedar and has 6 holes plus a leather tie so you can play it as a 6 hole flute as well. The non toxic oil finish gives them a bright, clear voice & provides creative fun for all ages. Easily fits into the pocket or back pack. It is one full octave above the Little Hawk and Sparrow Hawk in A.This is a small 11" flute, and it is high pitched and sounds a little like a fife. A small flute like this is easy to play. However this flute is not a toy but a finely crafted flute.
Odell makes each of these High Spirits flutes in Arizona from a solid piece of the finest wood (instead of gluing two halves together as is so common) eliminating splits or separation caused by moisture of the breath.
This flute does not come with the instructional DVD like the larger flutes but it does come with a link for fingering charts although they are not necessary as this flute can be played for fun without learning all the fingerings.
Mark down the tone holes from the chart below on a dowel or rolled up piece of paper to see if you can comfortably play this flute.
