Curly Mango Drone Flute in the Key of E
This is a Mango Native American Style Flute in the Key of E
It is tuned to 432htz. and has a clear voice. The key of E is said to be the same key that wolves howl in. This flute is a larger flute but with the holes spaced close enough anybody to play it.
I choose to focus on using locally sourced woods from around the Islands. Mango is an amazing fruit tree with a beautiful exotic looking wood. It is a hardwood that is very durable with a unique grain in every piece of wood.
I create my flutes from my off grid home, surrounded by jungle, on the island of Maui. I burn and carve the sound area as well as burn the playing holes and mouth hole by hand. The burning of the wood gives the flute a long lasting aroma of each wood I use.
I use only all natural organic products in creating my flutes. I apply multiple coats of tung oil and shellac. I then finish it with custom made wax made out of Beeswax, Carnauba wax, tung oil and essential oils. I have found this to be the longest lasting protection for my flutes.
Mahalo and I look forward to connecting with you.
