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 Reader tests the Wallet Instant Nose Flute

A reader of this blog — our friend UkeVal/LuthVal — has decided to test the Wallet Instant Nose flute, and succeeded well! I guess he used a rather thin plastic and cut a fipple a bit to high ([edit: template has been corrected] on my template, the "7 mm" refers to the height *including* the bevel. The hole itself is only 5 or 6 mm high). So, his sound is a bit too much windy. But UkeVal got the move and sound! Congratulations!

And his second test, with another WINF made with a bevel and a narrower mouth hole:


  1. Good job.

    I made one too. It works fine.

    1. Great, Don Luis! Now... you have o test the new "pop-up" model! :)

    2. I used a piece of 10mm tape to hold the two parts together.

      I placed it a little loose from side to side just above the windway. It works.

      I posted a picture on tweeter:

  2. Wow, great! I should do one too (or three:)
