The exotic African Olive wood is regarded by experts to be one of the finest woods for flute construction—because of its high density—it is smooth to the touch and produces a bright, as well as, rich and warm sound. An experienced flute player will confirm its quality.
Leaves were chosen as the branding logo. The leaves represent the life and spirit of the tree from which the selection of wood originated.
The Airflow System
The airflow system directs air from the player into and through the flute in such a manner as to require minimal playing effort and learning time. It also responds nicely to overblowing.
The removable silicone band is part of the airflow system. It is very light in weight and resists moisture condensation.
The inner bore is drilled with precise dimensions and alignment into a single piece of African Olive wood. Detailed care is taken at this stage to insure that the flute will resonate the warmest and richest sounds possible. The bore is also finely sanded and polished to yield a clear and clean tone.
The Finger Holes
The six evenly-spaced finger holes are located for ease and comfort of most hands. They are close enough together to be easily reached. Along with that, precise placement and size is necessary for the perfect pitch of each note played.
A very thin coat of epoxy is applied both on the interior and exterior of the flute. This gives the wood an added glow along with superior moisture protection.
The African Olive Wood Flute comes in a protective carrying case. The case is made from finely-woven dark green fabric and lined with black felt.
