Native American Style Camphor Flute Key of F# 440 Htz
NatIve American Style Camphor Flute In The Key Of F#
It is tuned to the frequency of 440Htz.
I choose to focus on using locally sourced woods from around the Hawaiian Islands. Camphor is an wood with a powerful cleansing aroma. This is my favorite wood to work with as far as smell because the whole time I work with it the smell permeates the air and is very refreshing.
This flute has a beautiful voice with clear above octave notes and a strong fundamental note. 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.
