Khamu central embouchure flute

3 hole suul

Thick bamboo tube @ 90cms. long 2 cm. diameter closed by a node at both ends (each node about 4cm. from the outer end; a round blowing hole cut in the middle and round or oval holes cut 4 cms. from each end stopped with the forefinger. The flute is held horizontally and closing one or both of the finger  holes produces differing sets of harmonics.
