Oregon has two distinct and different climates and terrain. The wet western side, and dry Eastern side. To represent the Western half we picked Oregon Myrtle wood to be used for the block, mouthpiece, and end cap. Myrtle wood is rare because it only grows two places on the entire planet. The Oregon coast is one of them. To represent the Eastern half we chose Oregon Juniper for the flute body. Oregon Juniper is a short hearty tree with an elegant fragrance. Tying these two woods together is the special North Coast Indian style Blue Heron block. The Blue Heron is a regular visitor here on the river.
Brent spent hours pioneering a method that could enable us to offer this highly detailed piece of North Coast Indian style art at a fantastic price. The block is a true collector’s piece. The Oregon Spirit flute has a wonderful cedar like tone with a warm spiritual voice. These are six hole flutes tuned in the traditional minor Native American Scale.
