Choroi's fine wood flutes are characterized by a warm, light, flexible tone and compared with traditional instruments they possess a tone that sounds more like a voice than an instrument. The Quinta Pentatonic Flute is made of one piece of pear wood and has no tone block and does not require replacement tone blocks.
This unique tone quality leads to a corresponding style of play. A free out-breathing, rather than an active blowing, forms the foundation for the tone. The tension-free mouth and lip positions also contribute to the tone formation and the warm quality of sound. Accessories included are a wooden cleaning swab and a cotton flute bag. Regular oiling is vital to the flute.
Note range: d"-e"-g"-a"-b" -d''' -e'''.
A = 440 Hz
We recommend Choroi's special high grade flute oil for regular oiling (one to two times a month) to maintain the tonal quality of this fine instrument. Available separately.
Playing and Teaching the Pentatonic Flute Book/CD is invaluable for teaching and learning.
