Kakaki; trumpet

Kakaki, end-blown trumpet. The instrument consists of a straight metal tube formed from five sections welded together. The conical bell at the distal end terminates in a flat rim. There is embossed dog-tooth decoration below the rim and a boss where the bell joins the body. A straight, overlapping seam is visible down the side of the bell. Two bands of narrow cord are wrapped around the body just below the centre point. The top of the pipe has a slight conical expansion towards the proximal end. The integral mouthpiece consists of a flat disc attached to the proximal rim.
