Instrument of the Month: Stellar Flutes


by Max Holmquist April 13, 2022

When we say that we are Gongs Unlimited, we're not just describing the non-limited nature of our Gongs, we're also talking about our unlimited love for intuitive and emotive sound healing instruments across the universe. Whether it's something new and unique like crystal pyramids or harp bowls, or something traditional like didgeridoos, shruti boxes, or ocarinas, we're here to connect you to it. 

So when the business spirit guides came down and said "Hey. Hello? Hey! Pay attention to me. Are you listening? You're not listening. I am trying to help you. I can wait here all day, for I am eternal. Paying attention now? Okay, good. Add wooden flutes to your collection of sound healing instruments and it will be good for everyone!" we said "Yes, we will do that," and we put our best minds on it. 

Today we are humming with delight to present you with Stellar Flutes. That's both a company name and a great description of their flutes, which are totally out of this world. Their family operation has been making high-quality flutes since 1995, now run by father-daughter team Tom Stewart and Lily Cox. Their flutes are carefully made from Western Red Cedarwood. They feature a simple design with an optional dark or natural finish. The beautiful design is inspired by the long-built Native American tradition of hand-made wooden flutes, developed and honed over centuries by the indigenous cultures in North and South America. 

We're currently offering a few options from Stellar Flutes, all of them perfect for beginners or professionals: two finishes (natural and dark), in three keys: A, F#, and G. Note: The flutes in the key of A are their smallest flutes, making them great for beginners, children, flute-playing kittens, pandas, or anyone with smaller hands.
