Abstract

This is a new type of flute, resulting from the assembly of a mouthpiece onthe end of the body of a flute operating similarly to current flutes with keysystems called Boehm system. This mouthpiece can be of different shapes, suchas a kena or shakuhachi mouthpiece, or be composed of the end plate of aflute fixed to the end of the tube. Other shapes of mouthpiece can beimagined as part of the scope of this patent, for example intermediary formsof the shapes mentioned, provided that the jet of air blown by theinstrumentalist is in the same direction as the beginning of the air tube andthat the bevelled edge is on the end of the flute. The flute may have bendsto make it easier to hold.<IMAGE>

  Title: Flute with keys and insufflation on the terminal edge.



  Description:
Flute resulting from the assembly of a body of key flute comparable to a body of modern orchestral flute called "Boehm flute", and a mouthpiece called "insufflation on the terminal edge".



  This mouthpiece can have several variants it can be of the Kena or Shakuhachi type (figure 1), that is to say consisting of the end of the pipe on which there is a cutting bevel on which one blows to produce the vibration of the 'air; another variant results from the assembly of the "mouth plate" as found on the flutes on the end of the pipe (Figure 2).



   The common point between these different forms lies in the presence of this bevel, on which the air vibrates, placed so that the air jet is blown in the direction of the air column contained in the bore of the flute (whereas, in the case of transverse flutes, this jet of air is sent in a direction perpendicular to the air column).



   For some flutes, such as large low flutes, the tube may have one or more elbows to allow an ergonomic grip (Figure 3).

Claims (1)

  1. Claim The novelty lies in the unprecedented assembly of 2 existing constituents, namely an insufflation tip on the terminal edge assembled on a flute body called "Boehm flute (or similar in principle). Such an assembly gives birth to a new instrument (a new kind of flute) in the sense that it has the same qualities of virtuosity and homogeneity of sound as a Boehm flute, while producing another timbre (a timbre closer to that of a kena, with firmer sound attacks), thanks to its mouthpiece.
    This type of mouthpiece eliminates the presence of the necessary plug on the mouthpiece of the flute.
