different flutes played like a recorder


different recorder, classic or traditional, irish flute, ocarina, native inidan flute. tabor pipe, overtone flute

The term "flute" is often used for a wind instrument in general.

We summarize all recorder-like flutes here, i.e. flutes that are blown like a recorder.

The mouthpiece of this flute is built as a core gap flute, which means you have a wind tunnel that is formed by the peg in the top of the flute. The wind tunnel directs the air blown in to a labium, a sharp edge on a window, so that the air breaks there and a sound is created. Recorders are quite easy to blow and are therefore often used as an introduction to the world of wind instruments.

Of course, the classic recorders are known, such as the soprano recorder, which is usually used as the first school recorder. But many traditional flutes are also built as recorders, whether from simple reeds or from sheet metal like the Irish Tin Whistle. The ocarina as a vessel flute is just as much a part of the recorder as the bone flute, the native Indian flute or the one-handed flute like the tabor pipe. Even the overtone flute, which has no finger holes, is blown like a recorder.

What goes beyond that are the travers flute or notch flutes. These flutes have simpler mouthpieces and are blown differently accordingly.

The harmony-flutes have a mouthpiece like a recorder, but no holes for the fingers.
different notes are played by different pressure of breath.
So you can play different overnotes of the base note.
Even you can change the note by closing the tube. So you can play trills.
We offer the harmony-flutes in 4 different tunes: Fa, Re, Do and Sol.
The biggest flute in Sol with ca. 80 cm length needs a long arm..

decoupled Davul

In the traditional models, both heads are braced together. That means you cannot span one side independently of the other.
To get around this problem, we have developed a new tensioning construction where each side can be tensioned separately.

The cord is not pulled to the other side of the skin, but is fixed to points in the body. This now makes it possible to tune each side to a specific tone and also both tones of the Davul to each other. The keynote of one side still depends on the diameter and the choice of head. We only offer this system for the larger Davul from 48 cm.
