Native American Style Monkeypod Triple Drone Flute Key Of F 440
This is a Monkeypod Native American Style Triple Flute.
This flute is tuned to the Key of F at 440 Htz.
I choose to focus on using locally sourced woods from around the Hawaiian Islands. Monkeypod is a beautiful tree found all over Maui. This particular flute is interesting because the light sapwood and dark heart wood is reverse from normal. Typically the heartwood is in center and sapwood runs along the outer part of the tree where as the sapwood is in the middle of the flute and heartwood is on either side.
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.
