An aerophone (/ ˈ ɛər oʊ f oʊ n /) is a musical instrument that produces sound primarily by causing a body of air to vibrate, without the use of strings or membranes (which are respectively chordophones and membranophones), and without the vibration of the instrument itself adding considerably to the sound (or idiophones).
Plosive aerophones (413) The sound is caused by a single compression and release of air. Udu "drum" or kimkim; Boomwhacker; End-struck pipe-based instruments, variations on earlier known instruments recently popularized by Blue Man Group, in forms that they refer to as Tubulum, Drumbone, etc. Non-free aerophones (wind instruments proper) (42)
A free reed aerophone is a musical instrument that produces sound as air flows past a vibrating reed in a frame. Air pressure is typically generated by breath or with a bellows . In the Hornbostel–Sachs system, it is number: 412.13 (a member of interruptive free aerophones).
In the Hornbostel-Sachs classification system, aerophones are designated as '4'.. 4: Instruments in which sound is produced through vibrating air (aerophone).This includes wind instruments and free-reed instruments.

Reed aerophones is one of the categories of musical instruments found in the Hornbostel-Sachs system of musical instrument classification. In order to produce sound with these Aerophones the player's breath is directed against a lamella or pair of lamellae which periodically interrupt the airflow and cause the air to be set in motion.
Are you sure the free reed instrument is an aerophone? Since the reed, not the air, produces the tone, it seems to me to be a blown idiophone. - phma Well, Erich von Hornbostel and Curt Sachs specifically cite the harmonica (and so by extension all free reeds) as an example of a free aerophone in the original 1914 version of their scheme.
Unlike woodwind instruments with reeds, a flute is an aerophone or reedless wind instrument that produces its sound from the flow of air across an opening. According to the instrument classification of Hornbostel–Sachs, flutes are categorized as edge-blown aerophones.
Aerophones primarily produce their sounds by means of vibrating air. The instrument itself does not vibrate, and there are no vibrating strings or membranes. (List of aerophones by Hornbostel–Sachs number) Free aerophones (41) Instruments in which the vibrating air is not contained within the instrument, for example sirens, or the bullroarer.
Aerophone, any of a class of musical instruments in which a vibrating mass of air produces the initial sound. The basic types include woodwind, brass, and free-reed instruments, as well as instruments that fall into none of these groups, such as the bull-roarer and the siren.
An idiophone is any musical instrument that creates sound primarily by the vibration of the instrument itself, without the use of air (as is the case with aerophones), strings (chordophones) or membranes (membranophones).
