This blog is dedicated to the sublime instruments called nose flutes and which produce the most divine sound ever. We have chosen to discard all the native models from S. Pacific and Asia, for they need fingering to be played. We'll concentrate on "buccal cavity driven" nose flutes : the well patented and trademarked metal or plastic ones, plus, by a condemnable indulgence, some wooden craft or home-made productions.

Controversy : Nose flute sold as a « joke item » !

I found this old advertising, printed in a german musical instruments catalog from the beginning of last century, probably dedicated to european customers. The flute featuring in the page is not a Humanatone (Humanatone had no « 8-shaped » nose hole and had a shorter « lower lip rest»). Is it a german model ? (or maybe the belgian Vociphone ?)

In the description, the nose flute is qualified in four languages as Grösster Radau-Sherzartikel, funniest roaring article, article de plaisanterie de bonne vente and articulo de burla. A shame for such a divine instrument!
