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 little Handler review by ShowNoseFlute

Sho Hirasawa emailed me this little review about the flute by Heinrich Handler I sent to him. Here it is, as is, and accompanied by the video-test he made with it.
(To answer his question about the « nice aroma » : I had put some protective lemon oil on the instrument)

I feel it to Handler's is made for high tone.
I don't have one can play high tone easy, ever.
And, Its high tone has power, It is nice too.

I don't got used to this type nose flutes, short time.
I train playing this type nose flute.
Lated upload, because it.
Its high tone tuning like +8ver for vietnamese one.
I surprised this point !
And, it can play long high tone easy.
It is very very comfortable!
I like Handler's nose flute.
It has character of different from others.

I think it to this nose flute lend handsfree.
I got a technique of playing Handler's, when I notice it.
I chalenge handsfree in this video:-)

I smell sweet nice aroma from it.
Can you tell me, what smell from.
