This is a double reed instrument from China

  1. Hmmm… Wide double reed, small cylindrical bore, sort of like a short duduk. Take a look at the wind section at 4:10 on that clip – what the heck is the double reed instrument on the left (right seat in the section) with the LEFT hand down where the right hand ought to be and the right hand clear out of sight??? There is much we don’t know about our neighbors to the East…

  2. I got curious and went to Wikipedia. Reading about the duduk, I came to link to the Guan, the instrument depicted here.

    Interesting reading…

  3. I’m having loads of fun finding these instruments, Bob. Not that I’ll ever really remember their names!
