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.

Home made : the experiment of a reader
Mister Ralf P. of Leimen (Germany), regular reader of this blog, lead some experiments using the template I designed. He got a good (and working) result with cardboard and polystyrol, but experienced, as we did, problems with can tin, breaking when bent (on that matter : thin aluminium breaks when bent *because* of the heat provided by the bending, and it would be interesting to try to bend it while dipped in cold water with ice cubes...). Anyway, congratulations to him!
