SIDE BLOWN FLUTE - Anasazi

Bamboo Body - Exotic Scale

 Regular price $175.00
Unit price  per 

This is a deep, mellow and mysterious side blown flute. 27 to 35 inches long

Plays well in 1 and 1/2 octaves. Recommended for a large hand span.

History: The Anasazi Flute is inspired by 2 long flutes found bound together in a Pueblo cliff dwelling in 1931 by a man looking for pottery to sell to museums. The 2 end blown rim flutes were found under a rock in one of the homes tied together with yucca rope.  It is dated to be from 624 AD and now rests in the Arizona State Museum in Tucson. In the 1950's the flute was studied and the scale published.

Playing tips: To get sound, hold the flute only around the mouthpiece. Press and roll as you gently spit out watermelon seeds across the flute hole. Once you get good sound, graduate into the first top 3 holes then all 6.

Great tip for making the flute sound great: Start all closed go up and down the scale, keep the lower hand "peace sign fingers" together, as if they were scotch taped together, for this ancient flute to come alive.

The side blown Anasazi Flute comes with a beautiful protective flute bag. And because you look marvelous and I am motivated, inside the USA, shipping and handling is included!

Erik, My side-blown Anasazi flute is awesome. Having never tried any kind of Anasazi flute before, I'd hoped it would sound as nice as the samples on your website, and it does! What a wonderfully haunting sound. I love it. Another job well done! My compliments to the chef (or the flutemaker in this case). Russ in Winston Oregon, October 29, 2019
