Clariphone - SANS LUTHIER

Heritage Music Walnut Pocket Clarinet Mini Sax Keyless Renaissance Chalumeau

Erik The Flutemakers Bird Flute. A very simple time tested design on a very nice piece of bamboo. It has the same type of V shaped notch as the Quena. Hopefully playing around with this will help me master the embouchure needed for its longer more complicated relative...

Erik The Flutemaker concert tuned flutes. I have one tuned to Bb. Exceptional craftmanship makes for such a sweet sound. At least it would if I could ever master the embouchure to play transverse flutes. Entirely operator error. Even if I never learn to play this flute well it will always be a joy to look at.

Becker Penny Whistles made from PVC.

Curious Wood "Clarinet". Too many holes to be a chalumeau, clearly not a clarinet...Somewhere in between. Was difficult to play at first but now when I play it I really do believe the the saints are marching in...

Pocket Uke - now you can sneak a uke into your next business meeting. So small it can hide just about anywhere.

Bamboo Xaphoon... I've heard the stories and the great (and horrible) youtube videos of them being played. Thanks to drastic undervaluing on ebay I will soon have a real bamboo Xaphoon not one of the mass produced plastic ones. Waiting is so painful!

Dave Shaw SHAW Whistles Key of Bb... Solid nickel silver sheet with carved hardwood block... If that sounds impressive please explain to me why. They describe this whistle as requiring a lot of air. Aside from being a breathy air hog it has a nice mellow tone. Thankfully I think the Titanic theme song would sound horrible at this pitch. Though for full disclosure I say that about every pitch discernible by human ears.

Oak Classic Pennywhistle With its triple nickel plated sold brass cylindrical bore and tunable mouthpiece it's supposed to be perfect for playing traditional irish folk music. I don't know any traditional irish folk music. None. No Gifts. No thistles. And for the love of God definitely not the theme song to the Titanic. Thankfully you can play any genre of music on these not just show tunes from Leonardo Dicaprio films...

Bamboo Quena The wailing crying airy tones of this flute tell the tales of the native people of the south american altiplano. Try as I might, no matter how I attempt to molest this work of art I can produce no sound audible to humans though I have done a very passable impression of Darth Vader making a lewd phone call. Grin, spit watermelon seeds, practice...

Hohner Musikinstrumente GmbH & Co. KG - CX-12 Jazz My chromatic harmonica took a dump and my very limited service skills have proven insufficient to repair it... Looking for a replacement and this one is ohhhhhhhhhh so pretty...

Apparently it's law that if one possesses this Tin Whistle one MUST learn the theme song from the film Titanic. These have always been fun to play easy to learn and difficult to master...but for ***** sake...enough with the Titanic song already...

Hohner Blues Harp. I switched away from these years ago but picked one up recently when the music store didn't have my preferred brand in stock. Now I'm busy finding that good tone again...

Mountain Ocarinas... fun to play so far, a little difficult to hold at first but definitely worth the time. The polycarbonate models seem virtually indestructable and are very portable. Now just to learn how to play them...

Cordoba 20TM-CE Ukulele. I wanted to learn to play the ukulele. I went with a tenor on account of my big hands. I haven't played it amplified yet, but it's a ton of fun playing acoustic. Truly a very beautiful instrument made by Cordoba guitars.

Learning to play this ancestor of the clarinet. I'm positive it's designed for children. It's "virtually" indestructible and you could probably use it to fight off an attacker. So far it's very fun to play.
