END BLOWN FLUTE - Andean Quena・G Major

Bamboo Body - V Shaped

 Regular price $119.00
Unit price  per 

This is a professionally concert tuned G major Quena. Will play in Am, C and Em also.

The 15 inch Quena is "The Flute" of South America and captures the musical heart of the ancient peoples of the Andes Mountains. It is a really fun flute that can musically cry and celebrate in the same song.

I have bought some quenas on my travels in the flute market in Cochabamba Bolivia, in Argentina and Peru. 

It is an end blown flute because of the burned and filed notch at the top. When a fine jet of air from a relaxed grin crosses it, there is sound and then adventure.

Lesson: At first just hold the flute without covering the holes. Lift it upward pressing against a soft lower lip and tilt it or pivot it while you press up against the lip to find the sweet spot where the air will spit to make sound.

It is a full major scale. All closed is Do. As in do re mi fa so la si and the back hole is do. The traditional bottom note is G. So a concert tuned Quena is a G flute. Which will also play in A minor and C and Em.

The Concert tuned one in G is the one sought by musicians to play with others and to record with instrumentation tuned in A440.

Every Quena comes with protective bindings and a flute bag and because you look marvelous and I am motivated, inside the USA, shipping and handling is included!

Special thanks to TeraShock music for providing such a wonderful piece of music so I could let you know what my Quenas sound like.

AN INSTRUMENT IS A FRIEND FOR LIFE

You can pick your instrument in the key you want to play in or it can pick you, as it calls to your soul offering to take you to an enchanted place.

When your heart begins to dance inside you, you will know which one to get.

Shopping Tips: Your instrument should fit your hands, so be aware if in the product description we are recommending an instrument for large hands. Please let us know in the “Order Notes” at Checkout if you are buying for a guy or a gal, if your fingers are very thin, or if your hand span is very small.

Your instrument is guaranteed for one year, but if you take care of it, it should last for decades.

When receiving your instrument during Extreme Weather, please let the package sit in your warmer temperature with all the wrappings for about ½ an hour so it can slowly acclimate from its cold journey. Our bamboo is tropical and needs a moment to say hello!

Sir, Quena arrived in pristine condition. It took about 10 minutes to get the positioning right, and off I went. Thanks for a great sounding instrument. Immediately brought back memories of my time in Peru. I will be ordering a sax from you before too long as well. Regards, T. Norris in Odessa, Florida October 7, 2018
Hello Erik, I would like to wish you much happiness for the year to come. My Oriental, Vivaldi, Quena and Penny Whistle of yours are the joy of my life and I play them everyday. Thank you for making my world light up! Much health and happiness to you and yours, Ingrid in France, December 23, 2016
Dear Erik. Greetings!! Got the flute on 29th of Nov. and let me tell you it is simply wonderful. It's sound is very soothing. Thanks a lot. I wish your work reaches to all the corners of this planet Earth. Thanks a lot once again. Best Regards Avdhesh in Oman, Dec.2, 2016.
The Quena arrived safe and sound in the same beautiful protective bag as all of my other flutes. This is the 4th flute I have purchased and I couldn’t wait to take it out. I was not disappointed. What a beautiful instrument. The feel, look and craftsmanship is what I have come to expect from Erik. Maybe even more in this case. The sound is beautiful. Thank you Erik for your service in making these flutes. How awesome that you can make a living doing something you are obvious so good at, and enjoy so much. I appreciate the opportunity to own your flutes, and look forward to passing them on to my children one day. Blessings Mark in Maine, Oct. 16th, 2016
Dear Erik The Flutemaker I was so surprised and happy that my flutes are here after just about a week. I love the sound of quena, but the Love flute, well it was love from the first moment. I was so moved when I held them in my hand. They are so beautiful and smell so good, like old timber houses in the sunshine. I love them a lot and some tear-drops fell from my eyes. I became so touched from something I can't explain... And the sound: Just heavenly! Now my days will be filled with lovely flute sounds. I will play every day, but before I start to play, I smell them. Then I come into a kind of silent mood. : ) Much love and God Bless all your wonderful work . Alice H. Borolin in Norway, August 27,2016
Dear Erik, Well, where to start! You made this Quena specially for me, posted it the 31st and now it is the 2nd and it has arrived!!!!! Amazing!!!!!!!I Can not begin to tell you how fantastic it is to have your Quena in my hands. Of course it looks good, smells divine and sounds great!!!! It is outstanding the way it is made and finished, I am so happy that I have found you on the internet and have been able to buy from you the Oriental, Vivaldi and the Penny Whistle!
