The Quinta Pentatonic Flute is a newly developed pentatonic flute made of pear wood without a tone block. It has a slightly stronger tone than those with a tone block and a very light articulation.
The interval and pentatonic flutes were specially developed for use by children, particularly in groups. The newly developed Quinta-Flute is light blowing, with very easy articulation and a clear transparent tone. With the newly designed labium and windway, no separate toneblock is needed. All the Choroi flutes are characterized by a warm, light, flexible tone. Compared with traditional instruments, the Choroi flutes possess a tone that sounds more like a voice than an instrument. This unique tone quality leads to a corresponding style of play. A free outbreathing, rather than an active blowing, forms the foundation for the tone. The mouth and lip positions also contribute to the tone formation. The fingers gently touch the specially formed finger holes, which allow half-steps to be achieved naturally by half-covering the holes.
A=440 Hz This is the flute most commonly used for the young child, around 6 years of age in Waldorf Education. (Please note that A = 432 Hz is also available upon special request).
