Granadillo is a rosewood from South and Central America. Commonly used for claves (percussion instrument commonly used in Latin music) and marimba keys. It's a fabulous tonewood. Hard and heavy, it makes for a really sweet-sounding flute. This flute has a clear bell-like tone. You won't hear much "windiness" in this instrument. Responsive and sweet is how I describe this flute. The 1/4" bands are inlaid with crushed turquoise. The bird is of Tiger Maple and you can see the four direction holes at the end. The direction holes represent the four directions; north, south, east and west, and are used to tune the fundamental note of F#. The extra length on the end of the flute adds a nice, mellow, throaty sound to the fundamental. This is a fine musical instrument which I think would perform well in a quiet, peaceful space as well as in a recording studio, on a stage in front of a large audience as well as in the great outdoors.
