tunings

The Al-Bahr flute is produced in 4 tunings, the smallest flute tuned in F (FA), ideal for a first contact. Then we have tuning in E (MI), D (RE) and C (DO). Since the flute in D and C is longer and has a more serious sound with greater spacing between the holes, ideal for those who already have practice with transverse flutes. 

BAMBOO

The bamboo selected for these flutes is the same high acoustic quality Indian bamboo from Bansuri, no internodes, perfectly cylindrical and medium to thin walled. The bamboos are dried in the shade for 6 months, treated and sealed inside and out with Indian shellac to resist weather and variations in humidity and temperature. In addition to fungus protection.
