Choroi flutes are characterized by a warm, light, flexible tone. Compared with traditional instruments, the Choroi flutes possess a tone that sounds more like a voice than an instrument.
This unique tone quality leads to a corresponding style of play. A free outbreathing, rather than an active blowing, forms the foundation for the tone. The tension-free mouth and lip positions also contribute to the tone formation and the warm quality of sound. Accessories included are a wooden cleaning swab and a cotton flute bag. Regular oiling is vital to the flute. Note range: d"-e"-g"-a"-b" -d''' -e'''. We recommend the Choroi high grade flute oil, available separately. Please note, flutes are not returnable.
The Choroi Traditional Pentatonic Flute is made of pear wood with a removable, exterior tone block. The tone is softer, gentler and more nourishing to the young ear compared to other traditional wind instruments (e.g. the recorder). If you lose your tone block, we carry replacements along with a bit of wax to secure it in place.
