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.

Very interesting experiment by Ken Tanaka

Mr. Ken Tanaka, Saitama, Japan, just published an experiment he did with a styrofoam food box. He cut a corner in a nose flute shape (so clever idea to get the 3D countour!) and stuck a smaller piece inside, with the help of adhesive tape. Look! :

Ken Tanaka made also a short video to show the very convincing result:

  1. Wow! So inventive! Furthermore, a very professional basic sound: dry and a little reedy, such an unexpected surprise!

    1. Yes, very funny, very easy, yet efficient!
