Oak wood

The mighty Oak tree stands as a symbol for strength and endurance. Oak wood has a high density giving it strength, and it is very resistant to insect and fungal attack because of its high tannin content. The wood has very beautiful grain markings.

Oak isn’t often used as a wood for instrument building however, because it has wide pores that are difficult to fill and it has a tendency to warp when drying. But when properly sealed, dried and crafted into a flute, oak has a beautiful comforting and wise sounding voice. The sound is warming on midtone to lower key flutes (G – F – E and lower) and has a bright character on higher (A – B and higher) keys.

Flute bag

All flutes come with a bag that was handmade to perfectly match your instrument.
