Peruvian Native Flute – Large
Made in Peru, this flute is traditionally crafted and is soothing and magical to play. This flute is held in front of the player and is played similarly to a recorder with 5 open finger holes forming the scale. These flutes are tuned to a pentatonic scale which makes playing cohesive sounding melodies easy regardless of music theory knowledge or experience.
These flutes will be sure to soothe and enchant you, bringing you back to nature and ancient times. Small enough to fit in a bag or backpack, they make the perfect company for hikes through nature and waterfalls.
They are a mid-octave flute with warm and rich tones. Finger holes are relatively closely spaced to make playing easy and achievable for anyone. Minor adjustments in pitch can be made by moving the bird forward (sharper) or backward (flatter). If the flute is sounding whistley or raspy the bird may need to be adjusted. Be sure not to cover the soundhole block completely and shimmy the bird back and forth until the sound is coming through cleanly and smoothly.
These flutes are traditionally crafted from jacaranda wood and slight variations will occur in the grain, knots, and finish – making them all one of a kind.
