You might check out the Xaphoon. Weird little thing, but charming.

Pull it out! Start playing it again! In the book version of THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING there were clarinets and other instruments the Dwarves brought along. They would probably have been keyless old-style clarinets... but that's okay. Dwarves were technically very advanced in metalworking and may have developed keyed instruments long before we did. ;-)

unfortunately, the reason I stopped playing it is because it broke, and I haven't the funds to repair nor replace it. while music is a passion, it is something I have little true talent and calling for.

I play the guitar too. Never on a trail or anything. Drums of different types as well. I like the ocarinas I've got. Easy to carry. And a wooden flute.
Still, I wonder if we shall ever be put into songs or tales.

I play the Irish tin whistle, or penny whistle. I also am learning the chanter, which is essentially bagpipes but without the bag...or the pipes....

I don't find I bring instruments to our group events much though. Mostly because we have several actual musicians in our group, including one who plays both the fife and the hurdy gurdy. it is amazing. We had a tavern night at an event in October and he played his hurdy gurdy while singing a full 20 page long ballad of Robin Hood in Old English. It was epic! :D

Sounds it :P

Gimli: It's true you don't see many Dwarf-women. And in fact, they are so alike in voice and appearance, that they are often mistaken for Dwarf-men.
Aragorn: It's the beards.
