The Native American flute is a simple musical instrument, traditional to many indigenous cultures of North America. Often called "the love flute" because of its potent sweet quality, it was often used by young men in courting. The legends and stone paintings of Kokopelli, the hunchback flute player, abound in the southwest USA where he came to many people, bringing his gifts and song. The flute was and is used by many tribes as a sacred instrument, to offer prayer through the power of song. The Native American Style Flute is the easiest type of flute to play, as it doesn't require a special embouchure to produce its tone. I often tell people if you can blow out a candle, you can make a sound on this flute. It is that easy. Sunreed Instruments offers these flutes traditionally tuned to minor pentatonic scales (5 hole, 5 note). Bamboo works particularly well with Native American flutes, lending a warm voice to an already rich tone. This flute has a mystical sound; it’s as if the echoes of ancient mountains are calling through the notes. Our Native American style flutes are tuned to A440hz, with a quartz tuner.
All flutes come with a handmade flute bag to protect it from the elements. Please note that case material/design may vary based on availability.
Other keys are available upon request. Please contact us for pricing and availability of custom keys.
Professional Tuning: Professional tuning means that you will receive a flute that with be tuned to A440 standard pitch through one octave. Please note, that flutes play sharper and flatter depending upon the embouchure and the strength of the individual's playing.

Light vs. Dark Finish: Light finished flutes are finished with a non-toxic all natural oil to protect the wood and give it an excellent shine. Dark finished flutes are burnt to give them a dark complexion.
