Good one Kari, what all do you play? A Guy
I play trumpet, clarinet and recorders well enough that they keep inviting me to these jam sessions. Classical guitar not too good.

It is a tenor recorder. Those keys are needed for two last holes as they are out of the reach of fingers. It is a fabulous instrument, my favorite, goes well with baroque and rococo music, Telemann
especially has written really beautiful music for it.
I like it also when playing traditional jazz and anything Celtic
. This is one of three tenors I have, this one is hand carved from a single piece of pear three.
Listen this from 1:28 forwards, it is a plastic tenor from Yamaha but still quite a nice sound:
