Sex?[edit]

The article contains the following interesting line under the title "Bronze lurs":

Bronze lurs were frequently found in pairs, with the "sex" of one instrument going in and the other going out.

I'm not sure what this means, I'm afraid, and there wasn't a source I could consult to get clarification. What does the "sex" of a bronze wind instrument look like, and where does one look for it? I've been unable to locate legs or a tail in the picture. ;-) Does anybody know what this could mean? —CKA3KA (Skazka) 22:02, 18 June 2007 (UTC)

Similarities[edit]

The wooden Lur sounds and looks very much like the Tweants Mirreweenterhoorn. Is it possible there is a connection, and if so, what would the history be? Woolters (talk) 07:17, 9 April 2013 (UTC)

I might be -- there is not connection with the original Lur though. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 212.130.79.38 (talk) 19:20, 14 May 2015 (UTC)
