Hi, I have a question on which I haven't found an answer yet. Surely every-one knows the Romanian gipsy band Taraf de Haidouks. I admire the art of the flute player of the band George Falcaru. He plays from what I know of it a ney or nai. I was wondering if any-body knows the maker of his flute. It doesn't look like a Turkish or Arabian flute so it must be made in Romania. I posted here because I don't regard it as a whistle but a flute like the Kaval. Maybe somebody on the forum knows more. I found not much on the Net. Many thanks,
Ron
P.S
If you don't know what I'm talking about, go to youtube and search for Taraf de haidouks. Thanks.

it could be a bulgarian kaval, a rim-blown flute similar to the ney, but the traditional kaval is bigger than it, bulgarian kaval is in low D or Low C (it's long like a low whistle)

In my opinion he plays a frula, a simple fipple flute very common in eastern Europe

If you mean the instrument that is played in this video from 0'20" on - it is a fluier, basically a wooden 6-hole whistle.
Unfortunately I don't know who makes these in good quality, I have one which is very bad (but was very cheap...).
