Kestrel Flute in High D - WalnutHS114W
Made of walnut, a hard durable and beautiful wood. This is a high pitched flute but it still has a sweet voice and being small it is a terrific "pocket" flute being only 15" long.
The flutes in the key of HIGH D are high pitched and sounds a bit like a fife. This is not the low bass D, but High D.
This High Spirits flute was designed in honor of the Native American medicine flute. It can be played as both a 5-hole or 6-hole flute. It has 6 holes and comes with a leather tie that easily converts it into a 5-hole flute. When comfortable just remove the leather tie and experience the use of the 6-hole.
Odell makes each High Spirits Kestrel 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. Each flute is finished with three coats of a non-toxic hardening oil for durability and clarity of sound, and it is precision-tuned so that it will blend perfectly with other instruments.
This High Spirits Flute also comes with an excellent DVD with Beginner and Intermediate lessons that includes instructions on how to play the flute, use different techniques, how to care for it, and more. An instructional booklet including fingering charts is also included.
