Ponderosa Pine Native American Flute Key of D - Bear - Finish BlemishJTDN-Bear-FB
This is a new flute but with a finish blemish.Jonah Thompson flutes are genuine hand made Native American flutes.
The key of D is high pitched and makes for a smaller flute and is great for backpacking and easy carry. The hole spacing is great for hands on the smaller side but not to close for larger hands. These flutes in the key of HIGH D are wonderful instruments but the pitch is on the high side. For a little more money there are the Jonah Thompson flutes in the key of A with a deeper and more mellow tone. Hear a Flute in High D
