Palaung single pipe

Palaung waou

In the simplest form of the waou a single tube with a free reed inserted in one end is set in a gourd. The player blows through the mouth of the gourd.  This example has six finger holes and one thumb. The point where the pipe meets the gourd is sealed with beeswax.
