The Double Flutes are as easy to play as the Single Flutes, they take just a little bit more breath. With a double flute you play the melody on one side and the other side provides the drone in the root note of the flute - it sounds like two people are playing.

High Spirits double flutes have two mouthpieces so you can play it as a double flute or a single flute instantly, without adjustments. This style is unique and generates good amplitude (volume) and the drone side plays the low and high octaves easily.

This Double Flute is a good accompaniment flute for the Contra Bass "A" flute and the Pocket Flute in the key of "A". This flute is tuned in the key of "A" minor and can be played in the relative major diatonic scale in the key of "C" major.

This is a 6-hole flute, we cover the 3rd hole from the top of the flute (known as the 6th hole) with a leather tie, giving the option to use it as a 6-hole or a 5-hole flute. It is easier to learn on a 5-hole flute.

The fetish of carving on top of the flutes creates the sound and needs to be in it's proper position for the flute to play at it's optimum (explained further within instruction booklet) High Spirits Flutes are based on the minor pentonic scale when used as a five hole, when the sixth hole under the leather tie is exposed the flute will play the relative major key in both the Diatonic and Chromatic scales. High Spirits softwood flutes such as cedar have a fine balance between warmth and clarity, the hardwoods such as walnut and birch are very durable and have a bright clear voice. Flutes are made from a single piece of wood (uni-body), they are not laminated together. The shorter flutes are very easy to play and learn with, the longer bore flutes have a deeper voice and are recomended for those who have experience with Native Flutes or other wind instruments.
