Persian Music Instruments

Nay: Is the soul instrument in Persian music. It is more than five thousand years old. The oldest forms of the ney dates back to the age of the pyramids. Ney is a vertical reed pipe with six finger holes in front and one in the back. It is made of a seven-segment section of reed. Ney is common throughout the Near east, although the Iranian technique is probably the most versatile, using both the low breathy register and the sharp higher register (held between the teeth). Ney has a rang of about two and half octaves.
