Each secondary portion or shank then receives the idioglottal reed which in turn reduces the bore. The two pipes, including the upper shank, are bound together whereas the uppermost reed section is applied to each as a single unit. Cord with knife-cut zigzag motif.
-  Condition: Missing drone pipe extension(s).
