This Native American style Concert flute is tuned to 444Hz frequency with a pentatonic minor scale in the Key of F#. The voice of this handcrafted flute feels raspy and strong. The price of this flute includes:
– 1 Hour individual workshop
– 1 Handmade flute bag
– 50ml Prana flute wax
– 30-Day no reason return
Every prana flute is tuned to professional standards with extended chromatic tuning so you can play a variety of other scales without having to buy a new instrument, including: Arabian (Hijaz) scale, Aeolian scale, Major scale, Jazz scale, etc.
Different from popular methods, Prana flutes are crafted from a single piece of wood by boring the sound chamber. This provides extra stability and a clean look, without seam lines that result from gluing separate wood blanks together.
100% Natural finish
The Prana flute wax protecting my instruments provides a sustainable high-end, low satin look with a natural touch and feel. It was developed from only natural ingredients to protect our planet and flute players from hazardous chemicals.

Walnut trees originate from Gaul, a region of Western Europe that includes present day Belgium, my homeland. Needless to say I have a special relation to this tree. I love using it for making flutes.
Native tribes see the Walnut as a symbol for clarity and focus, gathering of energy, and a beginning of new projects.
The wood of the walnut tree has a tight grain and can be shaped and polished very easily, making it fit for any type of woodcraft. Walnut has an average density (it’s not too soft, neither hard as rock), so as a flute it is fit for any type of key – low and high. Its timbre is clear and present.
Walnut also is an exceptionally beautiful wood. It can vary from light to very dark (black walnut), with the most exquisite natural drawings adorning it.
My flute bags are handmade from traditional weavings to perfectly match your instrument. They have soft inside lining for better protection.
Every flute includes a 1-hour personal workshop. For all practical purposes this workshop is held online, using the platform of your preference: Zoom, Skype, Whatsapp…
