Cedar is a typical wood for making Native American Flutes. I personally enjoy playing my cedar flutes because of their "feeling" in comparison to other flutes. Each Eastern Red Cedar flute comes with a bear-block. The totem of your choice can be purchased separately from our totems page. Because these are traditional 6 Hole Flutes and not the "modern" ones, be sure to check out the information about fingerings and the differences on our 6 Hole Flute Page before you order. In an effort to keep everything natural, we offer a sunflower oil and beeswax finish on our flutes (more about our finish on our "INFO" page). These Native American Flutes come with optional tuning in the Mid Tone Keys of A, G, F# as well as Low Tone keys of E and D and an additional mid tone option of traditionally tuned (which basically means tuned by ear with no particular scale in mind - the same way the old ones did, and near the key of mid tone A). We also offer optional 432hz or 528hz tuning rather than 440hz for our keyed flutes upon request! (just leave a message in your order if you prefer other than concert tuned to 440hz) Each include playing instructions and free domestic shipping within the USA and its territories as well as super inexpensive global shipping. See our shipping page for more info. Please message us if you need more info!

6 Hole Eastern Red Cedar Native American Flutes
Eastern Red Cedar is sometimes called "Aromatic Cedar" because of its beautiful smell that it produces. This wood is a little harder than pine and has been used for flute making for thousands of years. Cedar is a very unique wood in that it produces tiny "crystals" when it has been cut and the inside of the wood is exposed to air. Likewise, it makes beautiful looking and sounding flutes! These flutes are usually between 12 and 24 inches (30-60cm) long. Size is determined by the key of the flute ordered - smaller flutes are higher in tone and larger are lower. Don't forget to add a container of our Imitation Bear Fat/Flute Wax to care for your flute and a flute bag to help protect it from the elements! Also, check out our Info page for sound samples, fingering charts and other helpful information!
