Pibgorn, cylindrical clarinet. A cane pipe with six, oval shaped finger holes and one thumbhole burnt in. The proximal end has a conical reed cap formed from a section of cream-coloured cow horn. This houses the narrow cane reed-bearing tube, which slots into the top of the body. The tube is closed at the top and has an idioglottal upcut reed. A bell is attached to the lower end of the body made from a piece of black cow horn. The bell angles upwards by approximately 45 degrees at an orientation offset to the player's left. The rim is evenly serrated and has a U-shaped cut-out at the front. There are brass ferrules where the tenons fit into the horns at each end of the body.
