Redwood Flute in F#m
Redwood is a traditional wood for tribes on the West Coast. Redwood is fairly easy to obtain here in Arizona and New Mexico where I live. This means that I have good choices when I go to the lumber yard and that translates into exceptional, affordable wood for your instrument. Redwood has a warm, clear tone, similar to that Western Red Cedar. Since there's little waste with Redwood and it's also easy to work and readily available, I can keep the price of these flutes within reach of customers who may be watching their budgets more closely.
Redwood is used in situations that require stability in harsh environments. It is used for fences, foundations and other applications that demand a wood that is water resistant and impervious to the elements. This means it's durable and will not suffer from moisture that is generated while playing. It is also a soft and resonant wood that is perfect for the Native American or Indian flute. With all these attributes, Redwood is perfect for creating a wonderful sounding instrument that will last more than a lifetime and will give you the tone, playability and beauty that you want from your Native American flute.

Above, I have a photo of a typical Redwood flute. The color and grain can vary between the flutes. However, I make it a point to keep the wood interesting. The lighter colored wood is the sapwood and the darker red wood is the heartwood. Some flutes will have more red heartwood than others, however, I make sure that they all are beautiful, excellent musical instruments. The softer Redwood has a marvelous resonance which lends itself perfectly to the soothing tones of the Indian flute. Peruse the photos and check out the link to the sound samples below.
