    What is this instrument?

    Hi, took this photo at a folk festival, thought it might be an ophicleide, but searching on Google shows them as brass, and also looks like the keys/valves are on the other side.

    Click on the pic for larger image.
    Cheers MIKE.

    Don't worry Mike. By the time you post it next year one of us might have worked out what it is!

    It's a russian bassoon
    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.
    —Albert Einstein.

    Is this just to make sure we are awake Mike? Still at least you now know what it is.
