One-piece D fife at A-440 in Rosewood
with brass ferrules. This is ideal for playing mainly in D or G
with other instruments - banjos, fiddles, guitars - around the campfire
after a day of hiking or re-enacting. Similar to our Renaissance
fife, but with excellent octave registration. Very
easy, strong low and middle octaves.
Good for certain tunes in "A" which do not fit nicely the range of the "D" fifes and flutes, such as "Miller's Reel", "Big John McNeil" and "Sandy MacIntyre's Trip to Boston".
With sterling silver rings in Rosewood or African Blackwood
Known as "Band Flutes" in England and Ireland, these fifes are especially suited for playing Irish and other folk music in bands and sessions, with their strong, easy blowing low register. Their conical bore has been designed for perfect intonation and delightful tone quality.
