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.
Apr 28, Another metal Humanatone I found this Humanatone. Well, unfortunately not the baby itself, but just the pictures. We already knew 2 models of metal Humanatone see this postand this one belongs to the first type, with rectangular flaps and rounded air duct cover even though it is dramatically dented here.
Since it corresponds to the early shape, I'm inclined in thinking we have here a very early Humanatone since the stampings on both other known Humanatone include the patents : see this post.
Apr 27, Another documentary about The Grindchor. You may prefer a wooden nose flute, or an instrument priorly dedicated to very sharp tones, but in its range, everybody agree to declare that the South African nose flute is at the top. So, in this case "enhancing" means "pimping"! Here is a example of custom "Boc" I especially made for the Ukoliv Concertand particularly to play my "great success"!! I Like Bananas. Finally, I used talcum powder to lessen the glossy look.
I got a bronze nose flute! Edges not leveled, glue traces, bubbles and smears, and worst Deviazioni - Vasco Rossi - Vasco Live (VHS) the worst, the labium is crappy and uneven, at the point that it is not even parallel to the end of the air duct, it is oblique!
So, I decided to check if this nose flute is improvable. First, I sanded it all, to erase all the marks Scorpio - Giuliano Rizzotto - Bone Zone flaws, and totally removed the labium. And then, I prepared a new labium, cut in a 2mm thick aluminium plate. I filed it rather sharp, and sanded it. I beveled the labium frame in order to get a larger gluing surface, and used bi-component epoxy to settle Barbasso - Quilibrì - Eco Fato new aluminium blade.
I could have sanded more finely Das Original Oberkreuzberger Nasenflötenorchester: Der Grindchor - Kuschelrotz flute and stop there.
But I do not like much the colors provided by the Swan company, and prefered to try to paint it into a kind-of-metallic color. So, I put Das Original Oberkreuzberger Nasenflötenorchester: Der Grindchor - Kuschelrotz cellotape on the blade to protect it, sanded a bit more evenly the flute, drilled the lace holes and sprayed with paint.
I stupidly chose a silver spray dedicated to paint Christmas accessories On one hand, it was very difficult to get a regular layer either you get an uneven layer if you spray from too far, either you quickly get smears So I had to re-begin several times wait for a complete drying, then sand completely the flute, then spray again:.
On the other hand, I discovered afterwards how fragile this "interior" painting was. A very light hit of a nail was able to scratch the very fragile and thin shiny silver coat I wish It could have stayed like that So, I scraped the mix of painting and cellotape from the labium, and applied lemon oil.
I had tried varnish, but it had totally melt the Das Original Oberkreuzberger Nasenflötenorchester: Der Grindchor - Kuschelrotzand I had have to redo the whole process again Sanding, painting:. I don't know why I chose lemon oil, but I have to admit this intuition was Lemon oil is generally used to maintain wooden fretboards, so there Haddaway - My Face no reason to used it there.
The fact is the coat of lemon oil removed the very shiny painting coat, melted just a little bit the painting, just enough to get it even and smooth. Then, put it on the heater, and some 20 minutes later, the shiny came back, hard and dry, and the color had turned to a medium-dark metallized shade. Certainly not looking as silver, but beautiful too! And now, let's compare with the original : On the sound side, there is also a huge improvement. The new sound is more precise, clear and loud.
Here is a sound comparison. The first musical phrase was recorded with an original Swan nose flute, and the second with the enhanced one. I did my best to blow the same way and with the same strength, at the same distance of the recorder, and with the same settings. This is a very good news for Japanese players, who had difficulties to get them easily. Here is Mr. Just for fun : nose flute and A video showing a lonely man, full of joy and self-confidence.
