Description: The pensol is a nose-flute played by the Semang people who are found in the areas of Perak, Pahang, Kelantan and Keda in Central Malaysia. The pensol is a very thin and quiet instrument. It is unique from other Malaysian nose flutes, in that the last hole is very close to the end of the instrument thereby making the first interval a minor second. Pensol are very rare instruments.
