This double flute is a Native American style flute (NA Flute). This style of flute originates from the First Nations people of America. Caleb hand makes this from his shop in North Carolina, from start to finish, just as he does all of his instruments. It is a double chambered flute which means it is easy to play, just blow! It is made of high quality, heat treated and sealed bamboo.
Both the chanter and the drone flute is tuned to each other, so they can play with each other. Both flutes are in the same key, the left hand side has a full scale playing the minor pentatonic scale with six holes and the right hand side has three holes playing the first four notes of the minor pentatonic scale. The side with six holes (chanter side) has one leather strap for the fourth hole and the side with three holes (drone side) has straps for every hole. You can combine the flutes by playing at the same time or you can use the left side as a drone while you play the right side. You can play each side individually or together.
Note: Our standard design is for the drone flute to be on the right side and the chanter flute to be on the left, but if you would rather it be the opposite, please contact us to let us know during checkout.
Finish: The finish is made from Caleb’s signature shellac finish. It’s made from a food safe material called shellac that has been used on instruments for centuries. It’s durable and an absolutely stunning finish. The finish gives a 3D image of the wood and helps bring the characteristics of the wood out.
Frequency Tuning: You can have the option for the flute to be tuned in 440 hz, which is the international standard. Or you can have it tuned in 432 hz which is considered by many as the healing frequency.
The Size: The Mid-range size flutes are the standard size for most players. You will typically see solo flute players playing this size flute. Almost any sized hand can reach the holes for these flutes. If you're not sure what key you would like it in, we will make a standard key which is good for small or larger hands (key of A-G).
The Low-range size flutes are bass flutes. They create a low pitched sound and are very relaxing sounding. This is for people who can stretch their fingers at least 1 ¼ inch apart from each other comfortably. I recommend this sized instrument for a more experienced player.
Materials: Mahogany mouthpiece, mature, aged, heat treated and sealed bamboo.
Leather Bag: Our bags are made with high quality, genuine leather. The case is designed to protect the flute from being damaged when traveling or to store when not being used. The inside of the case is a soft material to also help protect the flute. A leather strap allows you to carry it on your shoulder. Note: We typically carry leather colors: gray, dark gray, tan, brown and black. Our colors of leather may vary depending on availability therefore we cannot give the option to choose what color you would like. But we will make sure it matches the style and look of your flute.
Stand: Our stands are made with high quality wood that matches the design of the flute. Each stand is designed to hold the flute for display when it is not being used. It allows you to be able to showcase it on a shelf or table safely without it falling off.
