Our Nagaswaram has seven finger-holes. There are
five additional holes drilled at the bottom which are used as
controllers. The Nagaswaram has a range of two and a half octaves like
the flute. The system of fingering is similar to that of the flute.
But unlike the flute, where semi and quarter tones are produced by the
partial opening and closing of the finger holes, in the Nagaswaram they
are produced by adjusting the pressure and strength of the air-flow into
the pipe. Hence it is a very exacting instrument. Also, due to its
intense volume and strength it is basically an outdoor instrument and
much more suited for open spaces than for closed indoor concert
situations. Comes with 5 spare reeds, 1 ivory needle or horn attached
as well as a carrying bag. Length may vary between 34" to 35". There
is approxamately 1" between each finger hole.
