Rim Blown Style Flutes
the rim/edge blown flutes (Anasazi/Hopi/Mojave) can be somewhat
challenging to learn to play the reward for learning is very fulfilling.
These flutes have an evolved design (less traditional) to the blowing edge making them easier to play than other edge blown flutes flutes currently available.
The embrosure is however based on a historical Hopi flute in the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts - Boston, MA. All rim/edge blown flutes have a two octave range plus.
For ease of playing the rim blown flute in middle C4 are the easiest to play becuase it sits very well in the notch of the jaw and the focus area is reasonable size with good transitions to the second octave. The middle D4 is slightly harder due to a smaller bore size it requires greater air focus in a smaller area and sits higher on the jaw notch but has excellent second octave transitions. The low B3 is slightly harder to play as it sits below the jaw notch with the second octave transitions requiring air focus direction change (like the technigue used in transverse flute - change in the angle of attack). The low B however has the richest fullest sound.
comment of wood density - Soft woods have a decernable difference in
resonance having richer harmonic content than hard woods. If you like a
rich sound the softer woods will give you that sound. Redwood has been
"the" most popular wood of choice for people purchasing them first
hand. Hardwoods however excel when played with other instruments as
their brighter tone (less harmonics) cut through the mix of the other
