Collapsible long trumpet made in three telescopic parts of hand-hammered copper tube, with brass cuffs and garland. The integral mouthpiece is missing. Brass ring-plate on bell flare. Dung-chen (""long trumpets"") are associated with the monastic traditions of Tibetan Buddhism, and are usually played in pairs. They can also be typically identified by association with the construction material, such as brass (rag dung), copper (zangs dung) and silver (dngul dung). This instrument is associated with the 40th Pathans and the 6th Gurkha Rifles, Tibet (1903-1904).
