Sunflower Stalk Flute, Native style in G# (Minor pentatonic)
This is a Native style flute built out of a Sunflower stalk from my Garden. A 5-holed flute, Tuned to G# at 440 hertz, 19”inch length, 1” inch bore, With a wood layered mouthpiece of Rosewood, and a mystery wood. This is a truly unique piece with some great sound quality. These flutes are much harder to make than using bamboo, because the Sunflower is so brittle. What’s optimal is acquiring a sunflower stalk that’s a mammoth (7-10 feet tall) preferably. Then after cutting it down you let it dry for months and months, then hollow it out, and begin the process of carving the fipple and the finger/tone holes. This piece is denser than most sunflowers because of how large it grew, so it’s perfect for making a flute. It’s sturdy enough to withstand a drop off of a table, but don’t sit on it, or squish it with heavy things. Great for a beginner to intermediate player!
