      OVERVIEW

      Fun and easy to play.

      This Native American-style flute features 6 comfortably positioned holes and each instrument is individually voiced to produce excellent tone with precise intonation.

      Its simple, yet elegant design allows you to very quickly create beautiful sounds and overtones in either the pentatonic modes of C major (Mode 1) or relative A minor (Mode 5).

      Simply cover hole 3 and the remaining 5 holes provide pentatonic modes 1 and 5. By using the pentatonic scale, most people can start playing simple songs in minutes. Yet, this great little instrument is also capable of playing a full chromatic octave in C major, so the musical possibilities are quite extensive. Includes 24-page booklet and instructional CD.

      FEATURES
      • 6-hole ABS plastic flute with adjustable snap-on tone clip
      • Can play pentatonic C and A minor scale as well as chromatic C scale
      • 24-page booklet and companion CD covers the flute's origins and myths plus playing instructions

      Explore the beautiful sounds you can make with this versatile and easy-to-play instrument.

      I have purchased thirteen flutes. Some through eBay, several that were custom made for me and some were from well known NAF makers. I like all the flutes that I've bought. I had positive experiences with all these flute purchases. My problems have been with these wooden flutes wetting out after ten or fifteen minutes and the wood's sensitivity to climate change. My problems have ended since I purchased three different "Sounds We Make native American Flutes." I was getting very discouraged with the wetting out and climate sensitivity of the wooden flutes. Then, I bought these ABS flutes. These flutes are so easy to blow. If you close your eyes and just listen to the flute's calming sound, you would absolutely think the sound is coming from a traditional NAF made from wood. It's tuned perfectly and it?s a pleasure to play. The sound connects to the soul and I just love playing these flutes. My flute sessions have gone from fifteen minutes to an hour or two, using just one of these ABS flutes. I can continuously play the same flute as long as I would like to and I don?t have to worry about the flute wetting out. As a mother, I think it would be great if every elementary, middle school and high school offered lessons using this ABS flute instead of the recorder. The instructional pamphlet and CD makes it possible for anyone and everyone to play this top quality flute at an affordable price that is consistently reliable. If anyone is as frustrated with the wetting out and the climate sensitivity as I was, then my suggestion is get one of these flutes. There are so many advantages to playing this flute; I find this is the only flute that I play.

      This flute is good for children/beginners. Because it's plastic, you can drop it or play with it outside without having to worry about damaging it too much. It actually has a pretty decent tone for a piece of plastic. The sound is more clear and consice compared to other plastic and toy flutes.However, for the same price, you can find nicer native american flutes made of Cedar wood on ebay. Note, this flute is made of a cheap plastic and looks and feels like a toy. However, like I said before, it's good for kids that abuse and don't take good care of their toys.

            Following a mistake in ordering a flute from Sounds We Make LLC, I found the owner, Hal Kacanek, to be a small business owner who truly understands the meaning of customer service, and values his customers no matter how small their purchase. Good Products - Good Value - Great Customer Service, can't ask for more.

                    I bought this flute to haul around with me and I leave my
                    more expensive wooden Indian flute at home. This has a good sound and true pitch. I love it and bought my brother one for Christmas.

                        I have a hand carved flute that is beautiful but I play this more. I'm not afraid to carry it with me when we travel. It is very sturdy. I love the clip which looks nice and doesn't catch on items in my travel bag. To my ears, it sounds the same as my expensive flute. I would recommend this flute to anyone...beginner and experienced alike. I have no problems with it. I'm glad it's made out of a safer plastic resin and not PVC. Because of this, I bought 3 more of them for my young relatives for birthdays and Christmas. The price is the best on the internet. What a nice and educational gift...the gift of music. The only request I have for the manufacturer is to offer this in black...I think it would look very progressive and cool. Thankyou to the inventor for making a costly instrument available for all with your great design and materials.

                        this thing is soo easy to play.. I wish it had a more narrow mouth piece but thats ok.. pick one up, only 20 bucks, I am not sure how you can be dissapointed at that price..
                        its plastic, easy to play, resistant to breaking, cracks ect. at first sight I thought this thing sucked but once I played it I was happy. [retty decent sounds come out of this thing.
                        its plastic, nothing else to really say, you can decorate it how you want to.
                        Its 20 bucks for a plastic flute you can take camping with no case, take it to the beach, drag it around, convert it into a blowgun for fishing... lol..
