Tabor pipe. A long narrow duct flute made from boxwood/fruitwood, with turned rings at the bass and having 3 large holes at the lower end. Length 14 9/16 inches.
Three-hole pipes have one thumb-hole and two finger-holes. A combination of fingering and overblowing encouraged by the proportions of the pipe, give a range of about two octaves. The tabor pipe is almost always paired with a snare drum to form a one player ensemble. The drum is held on the left arm and is played with a single stick held in the right hand. At the same time, the long pipe is played with the left hand. Until the early 20th century in England, musicians used this combination of pipe and tabor to provide the melody and rhythm for morris dancing.
