Mojave Flute

2009 March 31

During last July’s INAFA convention Michael Graham Allen played what he called a Mojave Flute. It had a sound very similar to an Anasazi flute but the scale was quite different. Michael didn’t have any to sell at that time but I put in an order and got my flute a few months later.

Surprisingly I didn’t mention to very many people that I had one iphone 5 remplacement écran but lately the largest number of emails I’ve gotten with flute questions have been about this flute. So instead of responding to each one, one at a time I thought I’d post a short article about them here.

These flutes are shorter than Anasazi flute being 24-3/4″ long with a proximal (the playing end) bore width of 7/8″. They also only have four holes instead of six.

The “notch” on the mouthpiece is smaller, or less pronounced, than on a Anasazi flute. However given the shorter length they are a little easier to play than their bigger cousins.
