çifte literally means "a couple of pipes". A U-shaped incision is made into the thin section of reed pipe to form a vibrating reed. Beeswax is placed on the reed to regulate its weight. The reed section is placed wholly within the mouth. The player puffs out his cheeks and uses circular breathing for a continuous sound. Used in folk music.
