Tai dam long pipe 1

Tai Dam pee lua luang

About 160 cms. long, 6 finger holes plus thumb.  The player normally stops only the top three finger holes and the thumb holes. The instruments is still played when performing a ceremony to heal a sick person and cannot be played in the village unless used for this purpose. There is an extra hole above the finger holes which is surrounded by beeswax and across which the musician fixes a thin piece of tissue paper or garlic skin to produce a buzzing tone. When not being played this can be protected with a paper shield.
