Transverse flute. A cylindrical metal tube, the metal an alloy of copper and silver (up to 10%) with some arsenic also present. The proximal end is closed with a flat end cap in the form of a disc, which slightly overlaps the edge of the cylinder. The distal end is open but has an outer lip similar in profile to the end cap. There is a round mouth hole and two round finger holes of roughly equal size. The finger holes are slightly offset from the plane of the mouth hole and are positioned close to the distal end.
