Native American style. Minor Pentatonic scale.
The voice of the flute is the most important thing.
This one is beautiful.

Great looking flute Rustic, I like the lacewood. Iv’e heard of lacewood, but don’t know anything about it, is that in the cedar family or something. Eventually I want to try another key beside Gm and would probably try the Fm or F#, maybe thats the same thing, anyway looks like you gotta player there.

Lacewood is an Oak from Australia (Queensland).

-- Doug, Bakersfield, CA - I measured twice, cut it twice, and it is still too short!

I think F#m with a 7/8” bore should be someones next flute.

Yours or mine?

It has in fact often been called silky oak. Those who work with it will know.

Nice flute Bruce, I think that you would like a F# in a 1” bore, if you haven’t already tried it. Also a G, F

I have a 1” bore that I glued up 1 hour ago. I have 2 F# flutes in 7/8 inch bore. One in alder, one in cherry.
The alder is my favorite flute to date.
My favorite key. That’s not a fair statement, I love them all.
Going lower to perhaps an E, E flat or D. I don’t know yet.
I am using 18:1 ratio ki-e-ta style, Keith Stanford.
Your comments are extremely appreciated.

Regards and Peace,

Bruce

18 to 1 ratio is a great ratio, I think that you ought to try a 24 to 1 ratio, it’s longer and has a bass sound even a 3/4 bore and on up. You might like to try Anasazi Flute as well, for sound 7/8 bore and long also 3/4 bore both very deep in sound, because of it’s length. Most F# are in a 7/8 bore, I don’t know if I mention it but 1” bore F# puts the F# flute in an awesome position and the sound …....... sorry I have to get a kleenex. lol
nice looking flutes by the way.
