Re: Galician and italian flutes
- The 'doppio fiauto' sounds similar to the Croatian double flute or
dvojnice, which is carved out of one piece of wood. I think there is also a
double-chanter bagpipe in Croatia, and the zampogna in Italy which was
already mentioned ; so it seems that there are double-windway instruments
both sides of the Adriatic, both reeded and fipple instruments. I don't
know of any elsewhere in Europe, East or West, though I stand to be corrected.
