About My Flutes

Firewind Flutes


Our Goal is to produce flutes that our customers will find easy to play and beautiful to listen to.  All our flutes are therefore tuned to the pentatonic scale, the same as used for Native American style flutes.  That scale is composed of five notes, all of which sound good together when played in any order.

Each type of flute that we make has its own distinctive sound:

Gemshorns (flutes made from horns) have a mellow, full quality.  Even the high notes have a mellow fullness.

Bone Flutes.  Ostrich bones produce a great mid-range while deer bones excel in the upper register.

Bone Whistles, whether from birds or mammals, have a clear, trill quality that carries.
