The pan flute or pan pipe is an ancient musical instrument based on the principle of the Close tube, consisting usually of five or more pipes of gradually increasing length. The pan flute has long been popular as a folk instrument, and is considered the first mouth organ, ancestor of both the pipe organ and the harmonica. The pan flute is named for its association with the rustic Greek god Pan. The pipes of the pan flute are typically made from bamboo or giant cane; other materials used include wood, plastic, and metal.
