#a177 :: Bamboo nose flute

August 8, 2008

ENLARGELike the Jew’s harp, this elegant little pocket instrument came from Adaptatrap Percussion in Brighton.

You press the curved mask against your nose, shape your lips into an O around the bottom shape and exhale nasally. If you cup your tong right, you get a round, easily dopplered note like that of a slide-whistle. I wish I’d bought more of these at the time for gifts. Such fun.
