The Kaval is a wooden pipe that comprises three parts. The uppermost part of the Kaval has no finger- holes. There is a special ring made either of antler or of bull horn which is fitted there and from where the sound itself is produced. The middle part has eight apertures, seven on the front part and one on the back. Musicians use only these eight holes. The third part has only four holes. The uppermost hole sets the basic tone and the remaining three are resonant. Without them the Kaval cannot produce sounds in the lower register.
The Kaval is one of the most mobile Bulgarian wind instruments. You can play easily diatonic and chromatic passages on it, jumps at great intervals, staccato, arpeggios and shakes. Compared to the other musical instruments, it allows for huge modulation deflections.
Kaval is the father of our contemporary flute. Scientific researches so far have proved that the descent of this unique wind instrument is from Ancient Persia. Thereafter this flute was transferred by proto-Bulgarians into Eastern Europe it was spread and widely used as a solo and accompanying instrument in ensembles for folksongs and dances. May be our Lord had blessed some Bulgarian master-musicians and they managed to approve the acoustic qualities of this flute, as they have also developed a new model. They turned the Kaval into a work of art by wood-carving, inlay, engraving with ornaments from Bulgarian folklore and this did not change its tone qualities.
