Soprano and tenor dulcians.

Dulcians or curtals are the immediate ancestor of the bassoon. They are played with a double-reed, and like most Renaissance instruments, they come in a complete family of different sized instruments. They are built with characteristic U-shaped bore of the bassoon, as opposed to a
straight-bored schawm or oboe.
