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.

Two other shepherd's nose whistles

We have already published several posts about shepherds' whistles, notably about the one we have in our collection, but also about the sheepdogs trials champion Tim Flood, member of the Nose Flute Hall of Fame.

Here are two other shepherd's whistles. The first one was crafted by the late maker Owen Humphreys, Talysarn, Wales, UK (picture #2). The second nose whistle comes from the Lake District, UK.
