The Vivaldi Minor is one of my favorite flutes because as soon as I start playing, it takes me to another place. It has a classical anointing that seems to drop me into the Renaissance period.
It is wonderful for improvisation and plays nicely in 2 octaves.
Approximately 16 1/2 inches long in the key of G# Minor.
Made from Cocobolo wood from the Pacific rim between Mexico and Nicaragua.
Tip: By going up and down the scale your ear will get tuned to the melodic minor scale.
All fingers closed but the top hole open is the high do. Finding a nice place of acoustics to play in, will further enrich this gorgeous flute.
The Cocobolo Vivaldi Minor comes with a protective flute bag and if you would like one, please let me know which one you like in the comment box at checkout.
What you are saying...
I received your Cocobolo Vivaldi Minor flute as a Christmas present and could not be more pleased.
It is a beautifully crafted, sonic treasure. Thank you for sending such a fantastic instrument. It is so much fun to play and sounds lovely! The packaging was wonderful as well and the case is perfect. I will be ordering more flutes from you in the near future. Thanks again Erik!

Hello Erik. I just got the Cocobolo Vivaldi Minor, C and D Pennywhistles and what can I say? I don't want you to get a big head of course but you make flutes the way they were meant to be made. I am sure that if Fluteland existed then all the little flutes living there would have a picture of Erik the flutemaker hanging in their living rooms. Thank you, Erik

I received the (3 Cocobolo Vivaldi Minor) flutes today. Thank you they are beautiful, and are easier to play than I first thought. I will be introducing them to my students soon. Beautiful instruments, I couldn't have made such quality flutes.

Greetings from Italy
I want to thank you very much for the fast shipping and, of course, for the beautiful flutes. I bought The low d Irish (cocobolo), The Vivaldi Minor (cocobolo) and The Oriental (bamboo) flute and I find that they have a beautiful, warm sound, really lovely and enchanting.
Thank you very much again.

I barely touched my oboe and my saxophone since I laid my hands on the Cocobolo Vivaldi Minor you made. She is such a wonderful instrument! Thank you very much!
