Hi,
I hope i am posting in the right section.
Does anyone know why are various fipple flutes are made from a cylindrical tube with the same diameter at both ends (bulgarian duduks, slovac and hungarian whistles) and some with cylindrical tubes but one end has a smaller opening diameter than the rest of the tube (romanian whistles).
How does this affect the sound? Or does it affect the sound?
Here you can see two photos that show exactly the difference betwen the two tyes http://hungarianfolkmusic.com/sct/74479 ... er-Furulya

The smaller opening at the end is found in several east-european fipple flutes (not only romanian).
It enhances overblowing, lowers the bottom notes and sweetens the overall sound of the instrument, but also weakens the low octave, particularly the lowest tone.
