    Hey guys i need to know what that horn is that the other dude on tour with them is playing? It is very small and sounds a bit like a flute! Its played straight out instead of on the side like a flute! Sounds like somthing that would be played in a irish song!???? Anyone know?
     
  2. uh, a flute? :rolleyes: or maybe some sort of recorder. Just like basses, flutes come in all shapes and sizes. Also, could be a tin whistle. I'm not into Bela Fleck :eek: so I really I wouldn't know.

    Iam having a really hard time finding one thats not cheap plastic! And that is what it is a penny whislte! I love that sound its awsome! As soon as i get one i will see how hard it is to play! I played flute for several years in high school so hopefully its somthing like it! I know they are tuned to like b! So lets hope a bass player of 20 years can go that high huh! Thats for the help guys! And if you see one that not made of plastic then yell at me.
