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.

Pic of the Day

Just a great and funny picture by Mr. Herman Vandecauter, at the harvest festivities, Ellezelles, Belgium. The nose flute is a vintage Schwan.

  1. One of the excerpts Antoine played with the RON family of flutes reminded me that the nose flute tone suits renaissance music ideally. The look in this picture confirms this to me even more: the nose flute is a unique concept and instrument, very much so like a cromhorn or serpent.

    Mind you, the nose flute also quite suits an ethnic setting, compared to the likes of a Jew's harp, morinhoor, sansa and sheng.
