SIDE FLUTE

Welcome,

 

Flute is one of the most popular instruments in various forms in many parts of the world. They have been used as instruments since 50,000 years, usually made of bone or horn, on which there are only enough holes to play 2-3 notes. In this respect, it is one of the oldest instruments and has continued its development in different regions, with different mechanisms and names, by going through various evolutions.

Contrary to popular belief, the Side Flute is not a European instrument and its one single piece and non mechanical oriented first version with today's system dates back to China around 900 BC. However, the Side Flute that was made with only 6 holes at that time. The Side Flute first reached India and became the widely used Bansuri, and entered Europe in the 12th century, to the areas where the Saxons lived. For this reason, the Side Flute is also called as German Flute. The Side Flute was redesigned in Europe in the 1600s as 3 pieces linked together. As time went on  the Side Flutes begun to be made of metal and more holes were added. Until the middle of the 19th century, sound was obtained by closing the holes on the flute with fingers, and these holes had to be far from each other in order to obtain a better sound, so it was difficult to perform. Finally, the German Flutist Theobald Boehm combined his knowledge of mechanics, physics and art in 1832 and developed today's modern flute system and arrangement using vices, levers and caps. For this reason, the name Boehm Flute is also used for the Side Flute.
