It might be like the tin whistle that's and Irish instrument. Some think
it's a kids toy but can be a legitimate instrument. I think one is featured
in the theme from Titanic. It's sort of a recorder flute made from tin.
I don't now that's the case but sounds like it could be. They have a lot
more volume than the recorder.
