#1
yes- the Indian Oboe!

one of those 4-bladed double reed jobbies
(guess it would be quadrabladed jobbie, to be precise ?
)

anyway, obviously Im NOT sounding like Ustad Bismillah Khan out of the box.
Hints? Tips? Recipies?

(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shehnai -- for those of us who have no clue what it is. Players are called "Shehnaists." Say that 5 times fast. Please continue ....)
thx for clarification. I sometimes asumme far too much. ...& we ought all, (as a linguistic group) be grateful that six Sikh Shehnaists arent fond of silently sipping soup by the seashore.

Seriously though, Pete; it is *quite* ethereal, and it is simply a sound i must attempt to make in this lifetime:
