Pocket Flute in the Key of High G - Aromatic CedarHS605C
A real "pocket" flute only 11" long.
The High Spirits Pocket Flute in HIGH G is created from Aromatic Cedar and has 6 holes. 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. Only 11" long. It is one full octave above the High Spirits Red Tail Hawk in G. It comes with a leather 3rd hole cover so you can play it as a 5 hole flute and remove the tie for a 6 hole flute. It is a great accompaniment for the lower G flutes.
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 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.Sound Clip 1
