Princess Tree flute “C#” (odd tuning)
This is Native style flute built from the soft star of a Princess Tree. This flute is about 14” in length, with a 3/4” bore, tuned to “C#” at 440 hertz, and has 6- finger holes and some tone holes at the foot of the instrument. Princess Tree is more of a weed than it is a tree. It’s a quick growing shrubbery, with massively huge leaves that resemble pumpkin leaves. This is the first time I have ever successfully created an instrument from it’s trunk. It is not like Sumac, Mullein, or Sunflower stalk at all. It’s core is solid and not soft/pithy like some of the other materials I work with. Truly a unique flute with a qwerky voice. Great for a beginner. It’s also a bit more of a costume piece. So if anybody wants this flute to pair well with a possible LARP/COSPLAY outfit, you’re in luck. Functional yet fashionable and easy to make sing, even though it’s scale is kind of odd. A great one-of-a-kind flute.
