You search your mind for what you know of the smokewood hautbois...
The hautbois is a tube crafted from wood that tapers slightly to a flared end. A series of six or seven holes are drilled upon the front, in-between the often decoratively banded segments, with a small set of two keys placed upon the lower holes to allow a wide range of tones. A slender double reed is placed in the top of the mouthpiece, giving the hautbois its characteristic reedy tone.
