Black Locust NAF Flute – Key of F# 440Hz
This six hole Native American Styled flute is hand crafted from Old Growth, 1st generation cut Black Locust from eastern slopes of the Colorado Rockies. Black Locust is a very hard domestic wood that many people consider junk wood but I like it. This flute measures 23 1/2″ long (measured on top) and features a 3/4″ inch bore give this F# a nice bright tone. Completely hand crafted and this flute features my signature step in front of the windway. Simple in design I have added our Otter fetish block which is crafted from a piece of Black Locust. Leather accents are hand cut Bison and is Dark Brown in color.
This flute like all of our flutes has been sealed on the inside of the flute to help against wetting out. This is a very easy flute to play and it allows you to blow soft or hard and not lose the sound. Tuned to F# at 440Hz at 6500 foot elevation, the 3/4 inch bore gives this flute a very bright voice.
The focusing channel on this flute is what I would consider a standard width and a proper depth providing some comfortable back pressure. I like playing this flute. If you are looking for a smaller bore flute that you will love to play consider adding this to your collection. Playing holes are average for this size flute and they are spaced a at approximately 1 1/8″ apart for the bottom 3 holes and 1 1/16 for the top three. There is a space of 1 1/4″ between the #3 and #4 holes . Ships with a protective flute bag.
This sound clip was quickly done on a cellphone so we could get something to hear. This is raw and was not recorded by our normal player Brock Jennings.
