Find the difference between Ney & Kawala !
« on: December 11, 2015, 07:24:19 AM »
Ney is made from reed, has 9 joints, 6 holes and 1 back hole, its featured in classical eastern music, and considered to be the base for all the positions (with the tanbur), kawalla is reed also, bigger diamater, 4 joints, 6 holes only (no back hole) and is somewhat harder to control, frequently used in arabic music than in turkish, and not so classically related.

I think they are indeed two very similar instruments! You are correct about the holes, but the main difference - I think - is the sound. Although the kawala and the ney sound almost the same, if you listen closely, the kawala sounds a bit more "heavy" or "soulful", if you know what I mean, as opposed to a ney.

Hello everybody ,

I'd like to know of the tone distances of the Kawala from hole 2 hole. I know about the distances of every Nay:
 
From down 2 top in 1/4 tone  steps:
Code: [Select]

distances: 0    -    4/4    -     2/4    -    1/4    -    3/4    -     2/4    -    2/4     -    4/4
hole       0          1            2           3           4            5           6           b(ack) hole

What about the tone distances of the Kawala?
