A identical developmentcan be shown for the flute, the trumpet, the trombone and all string contraptions. Instruments with a single reed that were called a shepherd instrument have existed for ages: The Zummarah andthe Arghul. Such instruments were pipes, and the reed was cut out of the tube itself. We are talking abouta rather simple tool here. They are no candidates as direct ancestor of the clarinet. But there is one:The Chalumeau spoken: Shaloomoh was spread widely in every single place Europe. The name comes from Greek/Latin,where "Calumus" means pipe. The Chalumeau always was considered a shepherd's instrument, that needed to be playedsolo. Unfortunately no Chalumeau has survived one assumes that it must have looked very like a recorderand sounded like the lower octave of ultra-modern clarinet. It was problematical to play in tune. Therefore it was uninterestingfor most composers and serious musicians, and was rarely used in compositions aside from some shepherd scenes.
