Manatee Clay Flute
How does it work? Air is blown through the narrow slit of the windway to strike the beveled edge of the "reed" hole, producing sound, then vibrates throughout the inside of the flute. Covering holes lowers the pitch; uncovering them raises it. Because enlarging a hole raises its pitch, each hole must start small and be enlarged until the desired pitch is achieved; each of the seven holes must be cut and tuned one at a time. This particular manatee flute measures around 3x2x2 inches. Your purchase will include a card about the artist and a fingering chart. Gift wrapping is available upon request.
