The Native American Style Love Flute

If you’ve been searching for a flute on the internet I know that it can be a bit confusing as to exactly what you are buying. But, I think that you can break Native American flutes and Native American style flutes down into two groups: those that are made by the hundreds in a factory like setting and those made by individual craftsman like myself. It’s difficult to distinguish one from the other because the mass producers try to blend in with the small craftsmen and deceive people into thinking they’re getting a hand crafted instrument. But they’ll never show you pictures of where and how their flutes are made. If you’re looking for a flute with heart and soul don’t waste your good money on a mass produced product. They look, feel and play like exactly what they are.

Backpacker Flutes
From $245

The Backpacker is not a so-called Beginners flute.

The Backpacker Native American style flute is made of a single wood species rather than multiple woods. It has a simple, low profile, contrasting wood bird on top of the flute. As with the other types of Native American style flutes that I make the bird is secured with a select quality buckskin thong. The Backpacker flute has a coat of polyurethane varnish on the interior surfaces and two coats on the exterior surface. It is sanded between coats to produce a smooth, even semi gloss finish.

Craftsman Flutes
From $315

The Craftsman style Love flutes are made from an attractive combination of two different types of wood.

The two species of wood are joined together at a forty-five degree angle. This creates an attractive design statement. It also makes for a more stable glue joint than the butt jointed end caps you see on most other Native American style flutes. The shape of the Craftsman flute is slightly more refined than that of the Backpacker flute.

Collectors Flutes
From $545

The Collectors’ Native American style flutes are a demonstration of my woodworking skills.

Because they are made within the same design parameters, Collectors’ flutes don’t sound any different than the Craftsman or Backpacker flutes.

The difference is in the amount of craftsmanship necessary to create each of these one off Love flutes.

I believe that the appearance of these flutes is akin to that of a magic wand. No two are alike.

Turtle Island Flutes
From $430

I call this flute the Turtle Island Flute. Turtle Island was the name that many Native American people used as the name for their North American homeland.

Like many other cultures they visualized the world around them as the shell of a giant turtle that was swimming through the space of the cosmos. The Turtle Island flute is made of my three favorite North American hardwoods – cherry for the body, walnut for the ends and curly maple for the detailing. I am confident that these woods are sustainably harvested. The Turtle Island flute is made only in 432 Hz with Just Intonation tuning.
