Native American Flutes: Finding the Perfect Fairy Flute
Twig the Fairy is one of my favorite creators of YouTube Videos. Even though she's not exactly a "YouTuber," per say, she does have some adorable videos that I've come across in my years as a Professional Mermaid and video creator. Honestly, watching her fairy videos made me want to become a fairy performer. I already wanted to have a set of fairy wings BEFORE seeing her videos, but seeing how she works her magic made me want to find a way to "work it" too. I noticed that one of the key elements to all of her performances is the fact that she does not speak. Instead, she communicates using her wooden flute. I love that!! It is so playful and fairy-like! After much back-and-forth in my head, I decided to go ahead and find the perfect musical instrument for my faesonas as well. Enter the Native American Flute.
Earthy Tones and Forest Fairy Vibes
Fairies are nature spirits. They are often thought of as pretty winged ladies that dwell in forests, dance magical mushroom circles to life, and frolic in fields of wildflowers (Granted, some are depicted as creepier looking mischief makers... take your pick!). Both of my Faerie Personas are depicted as being forest dwellers and wild-flower-frolickers. I myself, as a normal-human-person, have a deep love of nature too. Nine times out of ten, if you can't find me editing a video or crafting a mermaid craft, then I'm out in the woods somewhere! ♥
Because of my profound love of nature and the connection with nature that my fairy characters have, I knew that my fairy instrument needed to look as though it came from a fairytale world AND needed to sound like it was part of the natural world. I searched, and searched, and SEARCHED for the perfect instrument. At first, I settled for a Jorvik Panpipe (since I have a fondness for the Viking Era)... but that was much too high-pitched for me and I found that it was difficult to play. After scouring Etsy for creators of Wooden Flutes, I found a couple of flute makers whose work interested me. I sent out a couple of messages... and then I found Abedabun Flutes. That's when my brain became fixated on this one flute-maker and I KNEW that I had to order one of the creator's flutes. He made Native American Flutes from tree branches that looked and sounded like part of the forest. Oh my word... I HAD to order one!
Where to Buy Native American Flutes: Abedabun Flutes Review
When I emailed Nevsky off of Etsy's messaging system to order my flute, I half-expected that I wouldn't get a reply back from him. Why? Because I stalked through his flute inventory and all of the pieces were so beautiful that I didn't think someone like me could possibly order one. They seemed too perfect!!!
Much to my surprise, he messaged me back the same day I messaged him despite the time difference (Abedabun Flutes is located in Estonia, a country in Europe). He was so kind and responsive to my messages. His flutes were out-of-this-world gorgeous, and his customer service really sealed the deal. I sent over my money and we began discussing my order. Once I decided on what kind of flute I wanted to have and gave the creator a loose idea of what I had envisioned, he got to work on my instrument. Since I wanted the end-product to be a surprise, I did not ask for update pictures of my flute beyond the picture that was sent to me of the tree branch that used for the base of my instrument. This made getting and unboxing my flute even more exciting! ♥
In total, I paid $123.00 USD for my flute. (You can use the discount MARMAIDDISCOUNT for 10% off your order) I now play my instrument nearly every day and I ADORE the thing! I've learned to play many songs on it and will hopefully be teaching you a few in the future.
How do I feel about my Native American Flute from Abedabun Flutes? I love it to pieces and HIGHLY recommend it to anyone who is looking for a beautiful sounding instrument, Ren Fest costume piece, Professional Fairy flute prop or the like.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read all of this. I hope you'll get yourself one of these ethereal instruments down the road!
