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.

A Great Picture of Dr. B. B. Bumstead!

Do you remember the photo expert Mark Osterman, AKA the Dr. Barnabus Barnabus Bumstead, performer of a vintage medecine show, selling his "Celebrated Lenape Liquid Show" and also the "Dr. B. B. Bumstead's Humanatone Musical Respirator". Check this post if you don't!

Here is another archive from Mark Osterman: a great picture showing the Dr. Bumstead and the "genuine faux indian" Screaming Weasel (Bill Enos), taken at Kutztown Folk festival in the early 1990's. Upper left, you can see an advertisement flag (kakemono) for the "musical Respirator".
