An "aerophone" is any musical instrument that produces sound primarily by causing air to vibrate, without the use of strings. For example Flute, is a reed less wind instrument and relies on the sound emanating from the air that flows from the openings. Flutes, according to Hornbostel-Sachs instrumental classification are placed in the category of ‘edge-blown aerophones’.
