A rugged and lightweight flute perfect for taking on backpacking and camping trips.
The Native America-Style Flute with Contemporary Native Fingerings is a 6 hole A/C Native American style flute with adjustable snap-on tone clip made from high impact plastic . The word style is included here because federal law requires that non-Native Americans involved in the manufacture of Native American products give some indication on the product that the product was not made by a native American. This is not a toy. The simplicity of design and lightweight materials should not fool you. This instrument beautifully produces the full range of pitches associated with the Native American Flute without some of the problems of wetting out and upkeep.
The flute is pitched so the lowest note sounds A (a 6th above middle C). The primary major scale is C major. It plays all the chromatic pitches from C (an octave above middle C) to C'. The inherent pentatonic features of the 6 hole Native American flute allow limitless creative options.
This is a lightweight (3.4 oz) ABS (purposefully not PVC for health and environmental reasons), yet rugged plastic instrument that holds up to the riggors of backpacking or camping. Its size, weight, and sturdiness makes it the perfect instrument to take with you on any trip. Fingering standard = contemporary native flute fingerings. The cedar red coloring is in the plastic and its use meets all FDA 181.32 paragraph 11 specifications (b) (1) (2) (3).

Comments about Sounds We Make Native America-Style Flute with Contemporary Native Fingerings:
I have a real cedar F# minor native American flute that I play at home. It is rather delicate and so remains in my study. If I ever do a gig with it I will get adequate transport. The Sounds We Make Native American Style ABS flute serves as a substitute. I travel often in my job and need a small axe to play in motels/hotels. I had considered a ukulele but since I am a sax/clarinet player I thought this would work better. It has!
This is sufficient for composing and I now have a good grip on the pentatonic scales as well as their modes. I have made advances in music theory as well. Before I found this I also considered an ABS shakuhachi but those are more difficult to get started on. This flute is not always in tune but at the price it works. If you are a reed player who travels and don't want to take your best Axe along this is the flute for you. Also since it is easy to play it is a good starter instrument for someone who might be interested in trying a Native American flute. It is 6 holed and resembles the Native American flute but is designed slightly differently. I think this is a good place to start.
