The "Maya" is a six holed drone flute precisely tuned using the traditional Native American flute pentatonic minor scale. The chambers interiors are finished using Tung oil and the flutes exterior is finished with a non-toxic patina satin finish. This flute is silky to the touch. All flutes come with a stylized "bird" fetish.
Since each barrel is totally independent of the other, the flute may be played like a single barrel flute by simply positioning the lips on the right side of the mouthpiece so air enters only the right chamber. A slight shift of the lips to the left brings the left chamber into play and the sound flowing from the flute changes dramatically. The left barrel produces a drone tone which mixes with the notes being played on the right barrel creating a mystical sound that grabs the attention of anyone listening. Guillermo says that in the old times these were temple flutes to be played within the pyramids to connect with the higher self. We hope you enjoy playing them everywhere you go.
