Someone has been making these somewhere in Pakistan for quite a long time now. I bought one at the age of 13, and it was, I suppose, my first unusual instrument. My one was cocuswood and barely playable, but this one is rosewood and is substantially better quality. I’m guessing it was earlier than my one.
I’ve fitted a highland chanter reed to it and it is playing fairly easily at about an Ab. The 7th is a bit flat.
This instrument is being sold on behalf of the East Anglian Traditional Music Trust, who were left it by the late Adrian Hilton, former squier of Chingford Morris.
