Note: at least a part of the article seems to be copyvio of [1] (The shepherd's gaida called tsafara too). I don't have time to investigate what else is copyvio and to what extent. Nikola (talk) 20:07, 15 January 2008 (UTC)

Looks like its the other-way round. I'm guessing that they copied (those sections at least) from us. --DO11.10 (talk) 01:28, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

Moldavian kaval[edit]

  1. I am sure that the moldavian kaval is very far from Bulgarian kaval. A completely different instrument. I have both and i play on both and i am sure, that it need a new, other article. (Kaval disambiguation page?)
  2. The Moldavian kaval isn't just (traditionally) Hungarian. Romanian and maybe Serbian-Macedonian-Albanian-Bulgarian... play on it too.

Is the name derived from the Arabic kawala, or vice versa? What is the etymology? Badagnani (talk) 17:31, 1 May 2008 (UTC)

Armenian Bloul[edit]

The Armenian bloul is not the same as the kaval, I believe. The Armenian Bloul produces a warm timbre unique from the kaval, more reminiscent of a baritone Sring. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:13, 6 December 2011 (UTC)

Splitting off tangentially-related instruments[edit]

Today I split off a bunch of the "related instruments" into their own articles. Too many of them were only vaguely related in terms of being Eastern European woodwinds, and were not in the same end-blown duct family. Accordingly I've made new articles for Çığırtma, Svilpa, and Salamuri. The remaining "related" instruments seemed as least kaval-like, so I'm leaving those for now, though the article still needs plenty of work overall. MatthewVanitas (talk) 21:38, 15 May 2012 (UTC)
