A thelarr was a simple wind instrument cut from a reed.[2] It was considered a rustic longhorn.[1]


Thelarrs made a characteristic buzzing sound due to the dry fibers inside them.[1] They were very simple instruments to construct, so that skilled bards made them to give away to children.[2]

If purchased through Aurora's Whole Realms Catalogue, they could be obtained individually or as complete sets that could be played together to form melodies and chords.[1]
