The Hu-Lu-Si is not a double reed instrument but produces the sound with simple reeds from metal.
So the sound remember to a bagpipe.
Simple Hulusi have often only one bordun, and the third pipe is just a fake. This Hulusi, we offer, has two bordun. They are tuned in quint.
To play the Hulusi is easy, you don't need a special technic, you just blow in. You can open or close the bordun, but how much borduns are open it need more air to play..Chinese wind-instruments are signed for the tonalitiy at the third hole. This means an instrument chinese F, sounds in C, the deepest note of the melodypipe is C. The large bordun than is tuned in D, like the second note of the melody-pipe. The small bordun than sounds in A, a quint higher than D. You can play a none at the melodypipe ( deep C to high D).
The Hulusi is availabel in differnt tunes and qualities:
Every Hulusi has a luck-knot and a hardcase.
