This lens is of the Ernostar type. Wide open it's really soft, but stopped down it's really, really good.

Good question. This instrument is a "Midwinterhorn", only used in this area of The Netherlands between Advent and Epiphany (6th of January). The sound cannot be described, you have to hear it for yourself Wink

Thanks for posting the link, Karsten! Interestingly it was filmed on the "Lemelerberg" (for many of you it's just a hill) located just 13kms from our house.

Postcard winter scenes, Peter! I'm trying to figure what the person is
playing in the first, a baby Alpenhorn or soprano didgeridoo? Laughing

Ha! Didn't see Tobbs' post!

Thanks, Carsten, for the youtube! Pretty limited tones, no toneholes.
