A changsaenap is a peculiar woodwind instrument based on a saenap (a Korean brass wind instrument). It was born in the course of development of national instruments under the wise leadership of our Party.

It satisfactorily preserves the features of a saenap in terms of shape and sound quality, supporting the characteristics peculiar to our national instruments.

On the pipe are some finger holes for whole tones and half tones, and some keys.

Compared to a saenap, a changsaenap makes a wider range of and softer sounds.

Such characteristics make execution of folk trills, staccatos, vibratos, etc. successful. It is widely used as a solo instrument.

In addition, it highlights national characteristics in orchestral music and ensembles, and it is effective in playing appealing pieces.
