Quarterly Flute Donation
World Flute Society member Dr. Oliver W. Jones of Wild Horse Mountain Flutes graciously donated this quarter’s flute. This is an unusual flute for Dr. Jones, as typically his flutes are made from cedar or a similar wood. This extraordinary Native American-style flute is made from highly-figured tiger maple, stained to enhance the wood’s pattern. Dr. Jones states that this flute was crafted according to the specification’s of his Comanche friend and mentor, Carney Saupitty, Sr. (1924-2008). He feels that Carney was the best craftsman for the traditional Native American flute. Every flute that Carney made warbled. To Dr. Jones’ knowledge, Carney never sold or gifted a flute to a non-Indian; Dr. Jones was the exception.
The key of the flute is F#. It is a six-hole flute. This flute is 24 inches long with a 3/4-inch internal diameter. The ties are made from brain-tanned and smoked buckskin. This is a warble flute. The flute’s sound it wonderful.
Thank you, Dr. Jones, for your kindness and generous support of the World Flute Society.
