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.

International Nose Flute Day ?

Today, dear fellows in nosefluting, is the 120th anniversary of the registration of the patent US477167. On Jun. 14, 1892, William Carter's Nasalette patent was acted. Yes, the document was filed earlier (1891), and the instrument was invented even earlier. But on that 14th of June, the first modern nose flute got an official existence and a full juridic anteriority. Happy Birthday Nasalette!

So, I propose to choose today's date for the International Nose Flute Day !
What's your opinion?


  1. Yeah, I'm all got it, international nose flute day!

  2. Well, it seems that my proposal received some approbation, from Japan, USA, South Africa, Canada, and germany! So let's adopt it generations and generations!!!

  3. Great idea! Showing my credits to the International Nose Flute Day I gave a nose flute as a present to a friend and she was very happy! Yeah, we will continue spreading nose flute knowledge all over the world!
