    I have a folk flute, keyless, 6 holes. Pitched in D. It's basically diatonic and plays in G & D and related modes. Some Chromatic notes are possible. I also have several whistles in various sizes but don't play them very often.

    Here's a recording I made some time ago.

    I have several ukuleles in various sizes and am not planning on getting any more...

    at least, not yet.

    I also play some blowy things and a squeezy thing

    Why, what do you have against reeds?

    Ha, ha - I don't know of any flute type instrument that uses reeds - but there might be.

    I have absolutely nothing against reeds - I also like harmonicas.

    Just bought a Tony Dixon bottom of the range 'Irish' flute, & piccolo, (both in key of D).

    I can just about play up & down the first octave of the piccolo, but so far, I am only able to get the upper hole notes out of the flute, every time I try to go lower I lose my embouchure.

    That 'Irish' flute certainly wants to stretch my fingers out, it's worse than my baritone.

    Having fun though - so much pleasure I've missed out on not being able to afford musical instruments in my early life, but I'm making up for it now in my retirement.
