The Lon Dubh has a strong clear tone, ideal for a traditional music session. Particularly favored by intermediate to advanced players. Named the Lon Dubh (pronounced "Lon-Dove"), which is the Irish translation for "blackbird" due to the rich melodious sound, it has a deeper, more traditional tone than most wooden Flutes. The Lon Dubh is made using a very durable polymer resin meaning it is very very strong. This is a Flute that can be past down from generation to generation.
We use a sealing technique on all of our Flutes that insures the Flute doesn't leak meaning the air flows all the way through to give a strong low D. And if the Flute can achieve a strong low D the rest of the notes will follow suit. We also use a technique during manufacturing that carefully tunes all of our Flutes which allows each note to be in tune with each other. This is important as on a lesser quality Flute if you tune one note correctly using the tuning slide it may mean the rest of the notes will be thrown out of tune. Our system insures that this will not happen.
Supplied with an elegant lined-wooden box.
