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.

Piet Visser on dutch TV

Piet Visser, the famous dutch whistle collector, was seen on TV last october. He presented some of his wonderful whistles, but had also brought his "Blik", an american nose flute from the 1920's.

The nose flute part begins at 4'30", but the whole interview is interesting, even when you don't understand the Dutch language.


  1. Good topic! Mr Mechanic is a great addition to the collection!
