5 or 6 holes

Choosing a 5 or 6 hole flute is a personal thing. The minor pentatonic scale does not use the third hole from the top, so many people choose not to or cover it up.

There are people who want to use the third hole to have one more note and generate different melodies but to the ear it breaks with the minor pentatonic scale.

My construction system is based on 5 holes and unless requested I do not drill the third hole to respect the pentatonic scale.

Ultimately, the decision is yours, if you want a flute with 6 holes you just have to ask for it.

All the best.
