The Crow Flute - key of G minor - is a beautiful looking and sounding flute with a soothing melodic voice in the mid-range, which starts to get into the deeper tones. It is made from ebonized walnut, a hardwood, and inlaid with turquoise which adds to the natural beauty of the flute. Ebonizing is a process used in the early 1900s. Unlike a stain, the ebonizing process penetrates the wood fiber deeply. Walnut is ideal for this process because it has a dark brown grain that streaks through the black dye giving it a similar look to ebony. This process slightly enhances the sound quality of the wood. It is a good accompaniment flute for the Contra Bass G flute or the Pocket G flute.
It is a very versatile key, plays well with other instruments, and works well with many different styles of music expression - Native style, romantic, blues, jazz, etc. It is best for those with medium to larger hands. 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.
This flute is 23.5 inches long. Each flute includes a free "How To Play The Native American Flute" Book and DVD (Item 26 - DVD & Booklet - How To Play The Native American Flute).
