The mitbiq (miht-BEEQ) was an interesting Zakharan wind instrument that appeared to be two instruments in one.[1]


Mitbiqs were double clarinets made from reed tubes. Each of the clarinet tubes was complimented by a smaller tube that vibrated to create sound.[1]


A mitbiq required a great deal of practice to master because it involved inhaling on one clarinet and then exhaling on the other, allowing for continuous tone production.[1]
