Schalmei in the form of a toy trumpet
This schalmei is in the form of a toy trumpet. It is made of brass, with a nickel plated mouthpiece. Although it looks like a brasswind, the schalmei is a free reed instrument in which the different pitches are engaged by depressing the buttons. Although this is a toy, it is of extremely good construction.
