The Suling is a simple bamboo flute. A notch is cut into the the side of the top end, and this top end is surrounded by a rattan of bamboo ring (called beke') which is meant to facilitate blowing, leaving a small slit where the player places their mouth.The 6 holed suling can play at least 3 different scales.
For an in depth explanation of the scales and tuning please see this link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suling
Flutes of this type are used in the Balinese Gamelan Orchestra, whose importance goes well beyond the pleasure of music and into the realm of ritual ceremony.
The Suling flute measures about 17.5 to 19.5 inches long and its 6 holed note design is very easy to play.
