Black Walnut Drone Flute – Under Construction


American Black Walnut Drone – Key of D

Black Walnut Drone flute with a 1″ inch bore.  I have tuned this flute to D @ 440 Hz.   Done flutes are really cool to play yet they are a quite a bit larger than your normal flute and it takes some time to get used to handling.  Currently in the final shaping phase this looks like this is going to be a nice flute.   Contact me if you have interest.

“The walnut used in this flute as best we can tell came across the plains in the mid 1840’s.  Harvested from the Eastern slopes of the Colorado Rockies Walnut trees were brought by wagons along the Oregon Trail and planted around farm houses for the shade and the fruit these large trees produce”

The fetish design has been selected and I will be building it this week.  The plan for this drone is the fetish will be crafted with an Alaskan Yellow Cedar Base and the top part will be a turtle crafted from Sapodilla.

If you have interest in purchasing this flute please reach out to me early.  This page will be updated with progress pictures as they become available.  The flute will ship with a protective bag . If you are interested in this flute we will take a deposit to secure it for you.
