Rewa Rewa with Purple Heart mouthpiece, accenting, and totums - 54cm long.

This flutes was crafted by the renowned New Zealand flute maker Todd Chaplin, owner of Southern Cross flutes.

Todd's flutes are rich in tone and deeply atmospheric. As with all Native American flutes playing it is a spiritually uplifting experience that you and others will enjoy deeply.

Native American Flutes are usually tunes in a Minor key. The lowest note is roughly A below middle C. The normal scale for this flute is A, C, D, E, G, although other pitches can be achieved with different fingerings, but like all wooden flutes it's not absolutely guaranteed to be concert pitch.

This being a drone flute it is essentially two flutes in one, with the left-hand flute being an A drone, the same pitch as the lowest note of the right-hand melody flute. By adjusting your mouth it is possible to bring the drone on and off, thus allowing the player to create interesting interactions between the two chambers.

There is a lot of resource on the web covering how to play, what to play, alternative scales, etc. There is also an easy to learn graphic notation which helps learners to get started without needing to be able to read music.

I am selling this and another 2 flutes because a recent hand injury has made it difficult for me to play - otherwise I would never have let them go.

If you are interested in the Native American flute you should check out Southern Cross flutes.
