What is a TB flute ?

When you come to a fork in the road, take it.

I think it's handbells.  No, that doesn't make sense.  Here.  http://tbflutes.tripod.com/photos.html

 

Opportunity is often missed because it wears suspenders and looks like hard work.

Now I'm getting somewhere.  There is the TB flute AND the 5 hole TB flute.  (WOW)

I still have no idea about the TB flute being in Musecore (?)  Why not a "flute"?

Could it possibly mean transverse-blown flute (as opposed to end-blown)?

The end-blown TB flutes in the photo linked to above could possibly be Thunder Bear flutes-- a maker of native American flutes.

TB stands for the trade name of the flute maker.  Thunder Bear flutes. http://tbflutes.tripod.com These are NAF (Native American Style Flutes) both 5 and 6 hole.  One of the flute makers in the pictures Leonard McGann of Lone Crow flutes, a well known and respected NAF maker, passed away last year. 

Here is and example of me testing one of the NAFs that I made (Shadow Bear Flutes) to give you an idea of what they sound like:

Wow, I would have never guessed.  I imagined maybe a special voicing.

Tnx
