Quarterly Flute Donation
World Flute Society member Dr. Oliver W. Jones, Jr. of Wild Horse Mountain Flutes graciously donated this quarter’s donation flute. The flute has a nice warble, characteristic of Dr. Jones’ highly sought after flutes. It is a crafted Comanche flute according to mentoring that Dr. Jones received from a member of the Comanche Nation, George “Woogie” Watchetaker. The key is F# and the wood is Juniperous virginians, also called eastern juniper or eastern aromatic cedar. The total length of the flute is 23 inches. The internal diameter is 3/4 of an inch. The ties are traditional brain-tanned and smoked buckskin.
Thank you, Dr. Jones, for your kindness and generous support of the World Flute Society.

World Flute Society member Lee P. Nix of Farpoint Flutes graciously donated last quarter’s donation flute. The flute is made from Missouri black walnut and has a low-profile curly maple block. It has two bands of crushed inlaid Chrysocolla above and below the finger holes, as well as burned rings above and below each band. The ties are black buckskin. The flute was purified with cedar and sage smoke many times throughout its creation. This is a six-hole flute in F# minor, tuned to play in modes 1, 2, and 4. Its total length is 22.5 inches.
