Native American Flute Builders ?

Post by scottie »

Are there any NAF builders on this site? I have been working on trying to build a NAF flute in E . Received some info on a High Spirits flute in E( a small bore unit probably 7/8" bore diameter). I have the lower three holes drilled and tuned but the position of the fourth hole from the bottom of the flute is the one I am questioning because it is less than an inch from the 3rd hole from the bottom of the flute. Would anyone have any dimensions they would like to share for an E tuned NAF? I have seen the calculation sheets on flutopedia and they are pretty intricate and I know in the past they have not been a means for success for me. Thanks for any info.

Tell us something.: I play lots of instruments including several wind instruments like recorder and Native American flutes. I'm looking to expand my horizons and learn more about whistles, especially wooden ones.
