This is a reconstructed zink; an usual mid-age wind instrument. In this instrument, all was made from the start, i even cut the tree for the zink. A zink is played with a cornet mouthpiece, or a mouthpiece shaped out of the instrument itself. The sount is not particular brasswind, it is nevertheless a "brasswind" instrument. The tone is controlled with fingerholes. The zink was outplaced by the key trumpet, which was again outplaced by the valve instruments.
