- The stabule is a wood-wind instrument widely spread in Latvia. Most often it was made and played by shepherds at a night watch of horses at grass. On festive occasions and other folk entertainments even elderly people blew the stabule.
The stabule was made of broom or willow bark and wood. The bark stabule was usually made in spring from broom. Due to the natural shrinkage of bark they were short-lived. The wooden stabule was made of a trunk of ash-tree burning out or boring an oblong hole of 1.5 cm. In diameter. The length of the stabule varies from 20 to 30 cm.
