The Irish Flute is a musical instrument used to play Irish dance music, beautiful moving airs and melodies. The player or practitioner of this instrument is called a flautist. This Celtic Flute is played by using special and sometimes rapid fingering and through this several different sounds can be produced. While playing it, lip vibration is not needed but the movement of the fingers on the holes is everything. Blowing the breath across the sound hole at the flute’s head makes the sound. The most common use of the flute in traditional music is in solo performances in ceilidhs, pubs sessions, and concerts.
The Celtic flute we know today isn’t the same as it was originally. Hundreds of years ago, the model and structure of the flute was quite different. It has evolved and has become much lighter and sophisticated over time.
Our Irish Flutes for sale are made from the finest wood. Basically we offer 3 kinds of woods. The first one is Blackwood, the second is Rosewood and the third is standard wood. Each Irish Flute is comprised of wooden parts that are pushed together to make the structure of the flute. Some Celtic Flutes contain 3 parts while some consist of 4 parts pushed together. The tuning slides are brass finished and look elegant. We have made these items with perfect distanced holes allowing the product to make flawless tones. A perfect sound in the Celtic Flute is really important because if the sound is not perfect or as it should be, then the flute is worthless. Keeping this in mind, we check each and every model carefully by getting our experts to play it in order to avoid any mishap or poor product feedback later on.
