The tonal quality of this flute is in the lower range and it is very easy to play and very forgiving. The playing holes are set to be as comfortable as possible for a large flute like this. The bottom three holes are 1 1/4″ inch apart on center and the top three holes are set at 1 3/16″ on center with a separation of 1 3/8″ between holes #3 & #4. The number 3 hole is mid-point between the cutting edge and the center of the four winds tuning holes. This flute feels really nice in your hands and the color of the reclaimed Cherry gives it a simple elegance.
