Post subject:  mey or ney

does anyone play these? I love the sound they produce, large double reed, mouth blown. I don't know enough about them to buy one. They are probably a different scale too.
just wondering

The ney I know is a Middle Eastern woodwind instrument, no reed though..

I was confused. It is the mey I am intreested in, similar to the duduk. Has a huge 4 1/2" double reed. I'll let you know if I get one. It would be a good uilleann diversion.

I've owned meys and duduks. my impression is that the mey is a very primative duduk, but it could just be the crappy quality of instruments available (lark, mideast, etc)

I guarentee that if you go to the East European Folklife Center's webpage, follow links to their discussion group and ask about ney, mey etc. you will get a response from knowledgeable people.
