Ponderosa Pine Native American Flute Key of D - EagleJTDN-Eagle
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.
Jonah makes these flutes by hand, tunes them and hand carves the animal fetishes as well. He then finishes them with Teak oil.
These flutes are a great value and wonderful instruments. They are 6 hole instruments made of ponderosa pine that has a warm tone similar to cedar. The flute also comes with a link for instructional materials.
