High Spirits - Native American-style flutes by Odell Borg
Odell Borg, founder of High Spirits Flutes, has been handcrafting Native American-style flutes since 1990. High Spirits Flutes are made in the USA (Arizona), crafted from high-quality woods with durable, non-toxic finishes. They are very easy to learn and to play, even for those with no musical experience. Each flute (except for Pocket Flutes) comes with a free "How-To-Play" book and DVD that include fingering charts and flute care. We love High Spirits flutes for their beautiful, easy-to-produce tone, accurate tuning, and variety of keys and designs.
Tuning: These are 6-hole flutes, and the key listed for each is a minor key. All flutes except Pocket Flutes come with a leather thong to optionally cover one of the holes for a minor pentatonic scale. Relative major and chromatic scales are possible on each flute; see http://highspirits.com/pages/fingering-charts.
These are the High Spirits flutes that we most commonly stock. Many other woods, keys and decorative options are available by special-order. If you don't see what you're looking for, just inquire!
