Native American Triple Drone
There were a few historical examples of Native American Drone Flutes that have been discovered. The most well know were perhaps in the Calima Cultrure of Central America who made the 4 hole drones with 4 fingerings on each side! These are perhaps the easiest version most similar to those originals to play! 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).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!
