Our Highly Figured Ash Flute Blanks are stunning. We have received an exceptional stock of Ash Lumber that has as much figure and curl as you would see in Olivewood. If you have ever wanted to build a flute out of figured wood much like what you see in Bethlehem Olivewood, then this may be what your looking for.
Ash has a hardness much like that of Oak or Walnut.
Ash work-ability is much like that of Walnut which sands, planes, and turns beautifully. Ash has strong cut lines that hold their shape well and very little tear out.... if any. Ash is a joy to work with and renders an amazing look like no other. Ash is a common species used in Guitar making and has Superior tonal qualities.
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.
- 24" Total Length
- 3/8" Blowhole
- Approximately 1-7/8" Wide by 1-3/4" Height when glued together
- Single 7/8" Bore Sound Chambers
- Pre-cut Blowhole, SAC, Exit Hole, Focus Channel, True Sound Hole, and Sound Chamber.
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.
