The daegeum (also spelled taegum or taegŭm) is a large bamboo transverse flute used in traditional Korean music. It has a buzzing membrane that gives it a special timbre. It is used in court, aristocratic, and folk music, as well as in contemporary classical music, popular music, and film scores.

Smaller flutes in the same family include the junggeum (hangul: 중금; hanja: 中琴 or 中笒) and sogeum (hangul: 소금; hanja: 小琴 or 小笒), neither of which today have a buzzing membrane. The three together are known as samjuk (hangul: 삼죽; hanja: ; literally "three bamboo"), as the three primary flutes of the Silla period.[1]
