BEAUTIFUL SPANISH Cedar Flute Blank:
Spanish Cedar is Native to Central and South America and the Caribbean. Spanish Cedar color is uniform light pinkish to reddish brown in color. Not a true Cedar, but much more a kin to Mahogany, it will have much of the same traits of Mahogany but renders a wonderful cedar smell. It is very easy to work with and machines very well. It's tonal quality is much like that of Aromatic Cedar, in that it has a smooth, haunting tone that you would expect of a cedar flute. If your look for something that has the tone quality of Eastern Cedar, but would like a deep rich color, this is the blank for you. It's one of our favorites, and I'm sure you'll love it as well.
Our Process: Our
exclusive CNC designed flute blanks are like no other. CNC routing
significant increases the accuracy of cuts, allowing our blanks to
achieve much tighter tolerances and providing you with an air tight
attractive flute blank with minimal effort.
Due to the smooth movement and consistent speed of our CNC machines, each blanks sound chambers typically require very little sanding
on the inside. Some wood species varies in that the grain will stand
up more than others. However, our experience is a flute blank that
requires minimal effort before glue up, allowing you to get to the fun
part of putting character into your flute.
All of our CNC flute blanks come with precision cut
blow holes, slow air chamber, exit holes, focus channel, true sound
hole, and sound chamber pre-cut for you. Only light sanding, minor
shaping of air holes, and carving the "Cutting Edge" is required by you
before glue up.
Our exclusive slow air chamber ramp (SACR)
design allows for smooth consistent air flow all throughout the windway
and across the cutting edge. What this means is your flute will
produce a clean, clear, sound with reduce effort compared to that of
traditional flute designs.
Perfect centering alignment of our
Blow holes, allow for consistent airflow into the SACR and increased
back pressure providing a rich clean tone.
