We can see some of them on monuments and art work which are tons of every now and then hundreds of years old. These photos and infrequently broken artefacts tell us little or no concerning the music that was made with them,just no matter if people have danced. But you find much more about it conserved in literature or even inlegislature that provides us some idea how they were used and what effects they need to have had some Greek stateshave banned bound scales and types of playing because of the extasy it caused in the viewers!. Today we assume that the ancestors of the modern woodwind contraptions were developed in the center eastand have reached Europe via Turkey. Double reed devices just like the Aulos a double oboe in theEtruscan picture were already known in old Egypt and Greece. You see them on mural artwork in burial chambersand on wine jugs. These devices constructed progressively into todays modern instruments the fashionable oboeand the bassoon as well as the device frequently used in Turkish prevalent dance music. A similar developmentcan be shown for the flute, the trumpet, the trombone and all string contraptions. Instruments with a single reed that were known as a shepherd instrument have existed for ages: The Zummarah andthe Arghul. Such contraptions were pipes, and the reed was cut out of the tube itself. We are speaking abouta rather simple device here.
