F#m Bubinga for 'Smaller Folks'
A powerful flute that I don't usually make in this size, but if you have smaller hands and shorter arms and you want to get into a more 'mellow pitch', this one could work. Even if you are 'normal' this flute works well. Generally, I use a 1" bore for my F#m flutes, but the bore on this one is 1 1/4", hence the shorter length. The holes are somewhat larger in diameter. If your fingers are slim, you could have a bit of difficulty sealing them (3/8" diameter holes).
As you can see, the wood is beautiful and if you're looking for a ' canyon blaster' this flute just might fit the bill. I really like the volume and the tone on this one. Listen for yourself. Measurements at bottom of page.
