Kosso some of the finest wood we have ever worked with in making Native American Style Flutes. Kosso is native to West Africa and is used for medicinal purposes, and as a woodworking material, its heartwood color typically has a light golden brown base, sometimes displaying tones of dark red or purplish brown that become subdued with age.
Kosso has a dense grain, that is easy to work with and sands very well. The hardness of Kosso is 1360lbf which is very similar to the hardness of White Oak.
This wood is a joy to work with whether you use a lathe or hand tools, it holds it shape, and sands better than nearly any wood we have ever used. It's overall finish is superior and it's tone is sharp, clean, and clear for a flute like none other.
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.
