Codex Atlanticus, foglio 1106r

Glissando Flutes

These flutes has a straight uninterrupted slit instead of the classic holes.

Following Leonardo’s indications, the flautist can cover the slit with his hands and, by moving them, modulate the note’s intonation at will. He can thus produce all the sounds between the positions of the holes on a traditional flute.
The design is functional, as the instruments displayed here demonstrate, and the sound is similar to that of a modern toy slide whistle.
