Koa Single Flute in the Key of E 440hz
This is a Koa Single Native American Style Flute in the Key of E
It is tuned to 440 htz. It is made with a harder piece of koa giving it a rich and clear voice.
I choose to focus on using locally sourced woods from around the Islands. Koa is such a beautiful tree and has been used by the people of the Hawaiian Islands for as long as they have been here. One of the translations of Koa is warrior and it definitely has a powerful presence. It is a widely used tree for instruments because of its tonal quality. The Koa flutes that I create have a clear, strong voice with a unique look to each one of them.
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.
