Pheasant Wood Drone Flute in the Key of E
This is a Pheasant Wood Native American Style DroneFlute.
This flute is tuned to the Key of E at 432 Htz.
I choose to focus on using locally sourced woods from around the Hawaiian Islands. This flute is made from the wood from a pheasant wood tree that fell over on the property I live on. My friend and I milled it up and had it kiln dried. I love the process of getting to see it from tree to flute and know all the hands involved:)
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.
