The koncovka is a traditional flute played throughout the Carpathian Mountain region of Slovakia. Like the fujara, shepherd pipe, and double shepherd pipe, it is a duct or fipple flute fashioned from a single piece of wood, bored out and plugged at one end. It is end blown, has no finger holes and is two to three feet in length. Its ease of tone production, simple construction, and durability make it a favorite instrument of shepherds.
