My Papa is a flute player and sometimes collector of wind instruments. One I have long loved is the Double Flageolet. A British creature by birth, it first came onto this planet around 1800. Besides it’s really great name, it also makes a゠ super sound. Played, it produces the effect of two recorders at the same time. Sort of a wistful, far off trains sound that gets my heart.

A beautiful example:
