wi-pan-flute-lrgThe oldest Pan Pipes were found in 3000-year-old tombs. They were made from bird bones of different lengths, bound together in a row by wax or resin. Generally, they are chromatically tuned. They are named for their association with the Greek god Pan, but are also found in many other parts of the world, such as China, Melanesia, and South America. The playing method is the same as blowing on bottles. There are no holes; each tube corresponds to one note.
