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.

Noseless nose flute...

Mcraiglow loves to create, modify, electrify simple or very complex instruments. Yesterday, he posted this video in which he made a funny "noseless nose flute". I feel a bit bizarre, since I'm working on the same concept, with several declinations but had not yet the time to make the videos...

here is my version with a balloon :


  1. Hehe, c'est bien joli ça.

    I imagine it can be done with a bellows, like an accordion.

    Or like a bagpipe, put a bellows under one arm to inflate a bag under the other, then use the air from the bag for the sound.

    Or a battery operated air compressor.


  2. Yes, I made 6 different systems, including a compressor :) Just need time to make the videos, and also sunshine.
