Here is a fabulous new design by Altazor (Miguel's Apprentice), You can choose an 8 hole or 7 hole alternating drone. On the 8 hole the drone side alone can play E, A,B,C and high E, that can be changed to drone through the whole melody. This flute uses all 5 fingers on the left hand, but is quite comfortable and easy to manage for most intermediate players. If the thumb hole is too overwhelming, choose the 7 hole alternating drone, it will achieve notes E, A and high E on the drone side... still an amazing flute, and a bit easier to manage for the novice..
It is made of Poplar wood with purple heart mouthpiece and solid sound block, in the key of E. The sound is out of this world! super haunting! Refer to the video for a sound sample.
SPECS(approximate): Length is 24", 3/4" bore, Maximum finger spacing(holes 2 and 3, center to center) =1 1/2". Distance from mouth to first hole = 20"
