Feel the sound - when you play the Double Nova flute.
Discover a new dimension of flute playing with the Double Nova flute. Whether you're a beginner, intermediate or experienced musician, this unique instrument allows you to develop your musical skills while benefiting from its compact size and outstanding sound quality.
High Spirits' newly interpreted double flutes are just as easy to learn as the single flutes - it just takes a little more breath. What's special about these instruments: As a rule, both flute tubes are played together. The left pipe has no openings and always produces the same tone, the fundamental or drone. It is identical to the tone of the right pipe when all tone holes are closed. The right pipe has the usual 6 tone holes of the Spirit flutes and the tones can be modulated. So the left fundamental and the variations of the right side sound permanently at the same time. This creates a special sound and opens a wider space. In addition, it gives the impression that two flutes are playing.
The tonewood of choice: Spanish cedar
The simple Spanish cedar impresses with its lightness and a beguiling ethereal scent - just the right raw material for the handmade Double Nova flutes. The tonewood is relatively soft and can therefore be worked very well. The softness is also reflected in the warm, intense sound of the instruments. The full, resonant voice is also supported by ecological oils with which each Double Nova flute is treated.
Choose the individual tuning of your Double Nova flute
The Double Nova flutes in our range have a basic tuning of 440 Hz. This corresponds to the concert pitch A and is the common frequency for all modern musical instruments. You have the choice between the following fundamental keys - listed from the highest to the lowest flute:
- G minor
- D minor
- C minor
- B minor
- A minor
- G minor
- F-sharp minor
The firm lows and warm, intense highs are the best basis for playing these flutes in drum circles. Whether as an accompanying or main instrument is up to your own sound idea.
Your compact companion for musical adventures - the Double Nova flute
The Double Nova flutes from High Spirits are significantly shorter than our classic Spirit flutes, which makes them perfectly playable for beginners and people with small hands. However, you won't find the typical carved fetish here, but a discreet flat fetish glued on as a mouthpiece. Due to this special construction nothing can slip and you benefit from best playability and sound quality in one instrument. And last but not least, the minimalist fetish is also a real eye-catcher.
The short mouthpiece has two more advantages: On the one hand, less moisture accumulates in the blowing area. On the other hand, it generates enough back pressure to emphasize the clarity of the higher notes.
In addition to the playing comfort, the Double Nova flute also offers you practical advantages for traveling. It fits easily into smaller pockets and will fit into any suitcase, backpack or even your handbag. So you can take it with you wherever you go, whether it's traveling, music lessons, or spontaneous jam sessions.
