Teotihuacan: Melody Flute

Drone or play a melody on either side!

Teotihuacan: Melody FluteThe origin of this flute traces back to the Teotihuacan culture of central Mexico during the early classic period (300-600AD). It was originally used as a temple flute played by priests. It is sometimes called a melody flute because you can drone either side or play a melody on either side.

The flute features two harmonizing keys. One side is the key of low E, the other the key of high B. Each side offers three independent finger holes on the top of the flute and one thumbhole on the bottom of the flute. This provides a phenomenal note range.

An amazing flute crafted out of Western Red Cedar with a walnut mouthpiece and a mahogany ring and birds. It is adorned with unique artwork hand crafted by Guillermo. The sterling silver central piece has an inlayed turquoise stone and accented with a low relief carvings. Most importantly the flute not only looks beautiful it plays beautifully.

I purchased the Nest to carry and store my flutes. Last year we had some severe weather. I put my prized flutes in the Nest and stored them in the basement in case of a tornado. Well, the next morning the house was still standing but with the wind and heavy rain we had some flooding in the basement. My wife was the first to go down and when she yelled up to say we had water and my flute bag was sitting in it I got down there real quick. I unzipped the Nest fearing my flutes were wet only to find the inside bone dry. With a big sigh I unloaded the Nest and toweled off the outside. The bag is made with such quality construction it looks like new.
