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.

Elegant Japanese holders
We've recently presented the WIP (work-in-progress) yet radical nose flute stand imagined by Mr. Takuma Ikeyama.
Here are 2 3 very elegant versions of hanabue holders, made by Miss Sanae Maekawa. As stated by her, the second one uses a Tenugui (手拭), which is the traditional Japanese cotton towel : it is sometines used as a headband or head cover in Kendo.
[Addition : the pretty Miss Sanae wearing a Kimono, and a 3rd version of holder]
