A precursor of clarinets and bagpipes, the bin or punji is a type of double clarinet that has a large pumpkin like a wind chamber (its mouthpiece). The reeds (internal in the pumpkin) are made of the same nature, cane, as the instrument and is simply a small cut in the cane to a nodal point and inserted at the end of a larger piece.
The great performers make use of circular breathing or continuous breathing to create the typical sound, which in many of these instruments is quite a challenge. (This is probably the reason someone invented this squash system that contains both internal nozzles like air bag).

It is said that this flute was used along with the Cobras as a form of threat, since this demonstrated a supernatural power over the snakes.
