The acoustic mechanisms of 2D and 3D edge tones and a 2D small air-reed instrument have been studied numerically with compressible Large Eddy Simulation (LES). Sound frequencies of the 2D and 3D edge tones obtained numerically change with the jet velocity well following Brown’s semi-empirical equation, while that of the 2D air-reed instrument behaves in a different manner and obeys the semi-empirical theory, so called Cremer-Ising-Coltman theory. We have also calculated aerodynamic sound sources for the 2D edge tone and the 2D air-reed instrument relying on Ligthhill’s acoustic analogy and have discussed similarities and differences between them. The sound source of the air-reed instrument is more localized around the open mouth compared with that of the edge tone due to the effect of the strong sound field excited in the resonator.
