I make flutes in keys of low D, C, Eb and C# out of white, thick-walled, hard, non-toxic PVC waterpipe tubing.
These flutes are tunable, incorporating a thin aluminium tube as tuning slide.
The flutes use an internally tapered head design to facilitate second octave tuning.
The embouchure hole is elliptical (10mm x 12mm) and allows a powerful sound.
Finger holes are in-line as standard, but can be made with ergonomical offsets of some holes, as required.
