Message inside about the Panpipes....
The Panpipes (also called
Syrinx, Pandean pipes or Nei) is an instrument of great antiquity, consisting of
a series of tubes or "pipes" of cane, wood, pottery, etc. bound
together in a slight arc. The tubes are closed at the bottom end, and surrounded
by air blown from the mouth across the top, or open end. Graduated in length and
numbering from four to twelve or more, the pipes produce a diatonic scale when
blown in sequence. Thin pipes make a thin sound, larger tubes create a more
mellow sound. Commonly associated with rustic and pastoral peoples, use of the
Panpipes today is almost entirely confined to Romania and Hungary, where folk
musicians perform on them extraordinary feats of virtuosity. (Pictures of
