Photos of Where I Live & Work



I'm sure most of you are familiar with Mary Youngblood. I sell her play along books and CDs here on this website. She is an inspiration to us all. She plays a Paduak (sometimes spelled Paduk) flute on some of her songs including "Beneath the Raven Moon". I, personally love this wood as it has a musical quality that works for all types of instruments including the Native American Flute. Due to popular demand, I have begun making the F#m flute from Paduak. This wood comes from Africa. It is a clear hard wood similar in weight, feel and texture to Walnut. It is naturally a rich, rusty blood red which can change into a coffee color over time. I've finished this flute with six coats of clear acrylic polyurethane to help keep the rich reds that we see when the wood is first sanded. The tone is clear and true. The F#m flute plays all the notes the Native American flute is capable of, as all my flutes are. You can not only improvise to your heart's content with modes 1 and 4, but you can also play your favorite tunes in the diatonic scale of A-major, if you so desire.

You can listen to "dry" (no reverb) and "wet" (with reverb) versions of the F#m Paduak flute by clicking on the respective links in this sentence.

Coloring of wood varies. Most Paduak flutes will be all reddish brown and will darken over time.
