Question
oboe
oboe  
Hello I just asked you a question asking for help identifying an instrument but forgot to attach am image

Answer
Dear Rowena

It is an oboe "of sorts"!

It is conical and appears to have a double reed in the top. It might be in three parts which then is a true oboe - by definition.
A top joint a bottom joint and a bell. Certainly the bell is very flared. It is a an ethnic double reed instrument possibly Indian. But let's have a further look.

Is it possible to send me a couple more pictures please?
Closer up would be good if possible. Any markings in close up even better!!

send them to :
