Ney, Kawala Lovers / Suggestions and wishes for plastic neys
« on: September 02, 2016, 04:29:28 PM »
Hello! I wanted to share my suggestions and wishes on plastic neys, i recently recieved my kiz ney and i'm very happy with it(i left a review on it's page).

1. It would be great to have Yildiz ney on sale too!

2. It would be nice to have sets of plastic neys on sale, say set of five, from A to E. I'd gladly buy a set of well-tuned plastic neys for all difficult life situations.

3. Quality baspare for sale. It's easy to fit arabic ney with it, so i think it'd make sence to sell them separately. Also what would be really great is baspares made of olive wood, or horn etc.

4. Different paint colors for different size neys just because it's fancy!  ;D

Thanks Niri for your work!

Thanks you very much for help Niri!

I have just checked, and it seems like every note on my ney sound around 3\4 semitone higher then it should...

I play persian ney, and with persian technique i can vary every note within one tone with my lip, but i can only slightly change pitch
with arabian ney technique.

It means my ney is just badly tuned? Maybe i can fix it somehow? I have Alsaid Bayomy ney, i got it from AI.

I also tried playing guitar along with your arabic ney improvisation video, and it seems to me that your ney is also not precisely tuned,
i might be mistaken though...Turkish ney sounded very well-pitched on your other video. I really like how you play btw :)

I've recently learned how to produce all the notes in second(most comfortable for me) register, but now i've encountered a problem.
I have an A Mansur ney, and when i try to play note A by closing all the holes exept the lowest i get Bb, i measure it by comparing with guitar note and with chromatic
tuner. I tried to bend it by changing head position, but couldn't go farther then 1\4 tone.

Is my ney badly tuned? And what notes should i get on A Mansur ney naturally, just closing holes one by one? I've tried looking for this info on the net, but every source
seems so cryptic to a western-trained musician like me  :( Some people refer only to arabic names of notes, which ring no bell to me, other make overcomplicated finger charts which leave a lot of questions, for example why thumb hole is always closed etc.

Anyone to help a confused soul? :)
