About Native American style flutes in the key of D
Key of hi D Native American style flutes in the key of hi D have a bright and cheerful voice. This is a very high pitched and small flute. It is a great choice for a young child, though in my experience children can play flutes as low as key of G. The fingering holes are close together and smaller which makes playing this key of flute very fun. It is easy to move through the scale quickly and play lively fast paced tunes.
Key of low D Native American style flutes in the key of D have a very
deep and resonant voice. They are larger around then out E flutes, with a 1 1/8
inch bore diameter. The fingering holes are clustered in groups of three to
make them easier to play, but this key of flute is still better suited for
someone with some flute playing experience.
