Cedar & Gallery Flutes by Stellar
Tom, Matt and Erika of the Stewart family work as a team to craft precise and responsive instruments. Tom and his son Matt share many of the woodworking tasks involved, but each has his specialty. Matt tunes a Stellar flute and refines its “voice” or timbre. He also creates the bird block, which he designed to our specifications. Tom applies the finish coats using a process that involves two different sealants and five separate layers including the last layer of beeswax rubbed to a sheen. Tom’s wife Erika contributes much to the work of running the family business. Each flute is carefully tuned in the traditional pentatonic minor scale. They are voiced for a strong, clear tone and brilliant harmonics. We are proud to make these flutes available to you.
