These Cherokee Saw-Grass flutes are made of a marsh-reed very similar to River Cane. The reed has been used to make everything from drinking straws (yes Native Americans used drinking straws!) to fish baskets, blowguns, boats and houses! It is a very light-weight material and makes some beautifully haunting and melodic flutes. These flutes are usually near the key of "A", "B" or "C" although, we are not currently offering them specifically tuned. This is the larger version of our Cherokee Little People Flute and one of our favorite types of reed to make flutes out of. 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). 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.
Cherokee Cane (Sawgrass) Native American Flute
Sawgrass is another indigenous type of cane which has grown in North America since before Columbus. It also grows just about everywhere around the world! This is one of our favorite materials to work with because of not only its natural physical beauty, but it also makes excellent sounding flutes! 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!
