Redwood Native American Style Flutes

Redwood is a traditional wood for tribes around the North West Coast. Redwood is fairly easy to obtain here in Arizona where I live. This means that I have a few 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.
I invite you to check out my Redwood flutes. 
Above, I have a photo of a couple of typical Redwood flutes. 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.

Each Laughing Crow Redwood flute is sealed with Danish Oil and finished with at least four coats of clear acrylic polyurethane. Redwood is a very soft wood, this finish strengthens the wood and makes it more durable as well as waterproof. The finish also protects the wood from UV rays which will cause the beauty to fade rapidly unless otherwise protected. I have meticulously tuned these flutes with a digital tuner. This means that you can play along with other instruments and be in tune with them, also known as 'concert tuning'. The flutes pictured are examples of the different shades available. Yours will probably be slightly different. However, be assured that I hand pick the lumber that these instruments are created from and use only the most beautiful and perfect wood that I can find. 
I am confident that you will be not only more than satisfied with the tone from my Native American style Redwood flutes, I also know that this flute will stand head and shoulders above anything comparably priced. The tone is better, in my humble opinion, than that of some flutes costing hundreds more. This flute is made with the same precision, voicing, tuning and care that I give to all my flutes. This Native American style flute is a great value. Take advantage of this opportunity and get yourself a professional quality Laughing Crow flute that you will be happy to play for a lifetime.  As with all Laughing Crow Wooden Flutes, this flute comes with a turquoise cabochon and a free felt case.

List of different keyed flutes and their average sizes for Laughing Crow Wooden flutes.

These sizes are all average. The hole spacing and hole sizes are the maximum used. Some holes are a bit smaller and some hole spacings are slightly larger than what is listed. It's up to you to decide if your hands can fit these flutes. The lower pitches are bigger and longer. It's a matter of physics. I understand that lots of folks want the lower pitches, but if you want lower, it's going to be bigger. The list starts at the higher pitches and goes lower as you go down the list. I hope this helps you determine the size that you can handle.
