Mini Zurna, 5-hole

This playable mini zurna is approximately 5.5 inches long, not including the reed and staple.  Bell width is 2 inches.

The Zurna (pronounced zewer-na), like the duduk and Kaval, is a woodwind instrument used to play Anatolian and Middle Eastern folk music. The zurna is a conical oboe and uses a double reed which generates a sharp, piercing sound. Thus, it has historically been played outdoors during festive events such as weddings and holidays.

This mini zurna has 5 holes on the front, which are used while playing, and 1 thumbhole which provide a range of one octave.

It is similar to the Mizmar. Zurnas are also used in the folk music of the countries in the region, especially Azerbaijan, Armenia, Republic of Macedonia , Croatia, Turkey, Iraq, Greece, Assyria, Iran, Albania, Bosnia and the other Caucasian countries., and has now spread throughout China, and Eastern Europe.
