What a beautiful tone. I hadnt heard of rim blown flutes before. Its always great to hear and see and hear an instrument with history.

Wow! I've heard of rim blown flutes but not see one up close. I'll bet it takes a lot a practice to get sounds.

The Top flute is the Anasazi at 30 inches; the bottom is the Desert Flute at 24.7.........Scott August at Ceder Mesa flutes has a great write up and close up pics of these.

Wow.  That is not an easy flute to play!  Very haunting sound.  Yes, please post a picture, @Salt-Springs! I'd be interested to know if the spread for the fingers is doable for someone like me with shorter fingers.

This is a sample of a Rim Blown Native American Flute played on a flute made by Michael Graham Allen constructed and replicating a flutes built in the 1800's by Native Americans.  This is a "short" flute of 24.7 inches and has four holes.  The root note is B4.  Michael  bases his design on the artifacts common in this area.
