Ney or Nay Flute is a development of the Kawala adapted for Arabic music. The Ney has 7 holes, one on the back. Its tuning is adjusted for oriental Arabic music in which 1/4 tone is used. The sound is emitted from the inclination of the flute under the lips forming an angle over the corner of the mouthpiece, it requires training in embo cad and pitch to produce a satisfactory sound, being possible to reach 3 octaves with ease and up to 4 octaves with skill. When we master the embouchure cad becomes an extension of the voice! It is one of the oldest, simplest and most powerful flutes in existence. The Ney was cad by the Egyptians thousands of years ago, its use being documented in tomb paintings around 2700 BC There are basically three styles of Ney : Egyptian Ney Ney and Turkish Ney


We produce the Ney 6 tunings, being the ney Bolahenk It is the shortest flute and ideal for beginners. Then we have sipürde D, Yldiz C, Kiz B, Mansur A and Sah G tunings, with the Ney Sah G the flute with the longest length and lowest tone. Its drilling reproduces the scale adapted for Arabic musicality that uses 1/4 of a tone. As it is an edge wind flute, it depends on embocature practice cad reproduce quality sound, not being an easy flute to play in a first contact. With practice, it is possible to play up to 4 octaves on the ney of greater length, but the larger flutes are more difficult to produce the bass sound in some notes of the first octave. Ney flute is a flute that requires playing practice.


Traditionally, ney or nay flutes are produced with cane bamboo ( Arundo Donax ), which is a kind of light and fragile cane. We produce the flutes with a more resistant bamboo called Indian cane (Phyllostachys aurea). The bamboo selected for these flutes is of high acoustic quality of medium thickness. The bamboos are cad in the shade for 6 months, treated and sealed to withstand time and variations in humidity and temperature. In addition to protection against fungi. The mouthpiece of the flutes is produced in the bamboo itself.


All flutes receive non-toxic varnish (Indian shellac) and colored protective threads that can be chosen on the flute page. Choose a tuning and on the flute page you can choose the wire colors. We don't produce in quantity, we create the flute for YOU, with full attention to sound quality.
