Em Side-Blown Tiger Maple Flute #1
My Em flutes can be somewhat difficult for some folks with less than large hands and/or longer fingers. Also, the arm stretch can pose some issues. I like to make my Em flutes with a 1" bore because I like the tone. A bigger bore means a shorter flute, but I prefer the tone of the 1" bore. One of the remedies for handling the longer flutes is to put the mouthpiece on the side. This means you don't have to stretch your arms so far out which makes reaching the holes much easier. You hold this flute sideways with your elbows slightly bent. The tone is the same as my regular Em flutes, but they're much easier to play.
The accents are Eastern Cedar and Claro Walnut.
The mouthpiece on this first flute is a little more angled than the second flute displayed here on this page. Otherwise they're both basically the same except for the color of the accents and the grain pattern of the Tiger Maple.
I have two of these in stock. You can see and hear the different ones
on this page. The second flute is pictured below.
