Russian Zhaleika

Zhaleika is one of the most common Russian folk reed woodwind instruments. The concert Zhaleika has a range of one octave and a diatonic mode. It consists of a wooden chanter, a cowhorn which is used as a bell. It also has a wooden cap which covers the reed.
Zhaleika often used in orchestras and folk groups.
They have diatonic mode, either major natural or mixolydian mode. They have a range of one octave and open fingering was for playing.
In my workshop you can order a zhaleika in any scale.
Reed is made of synthetic materials.
