Tulum (bagpipe) is one of the wind instrument group, it consists of three parts; the skin, "nav" and mouthpiece. Air is stored in the skin, and when this is squeezed the air is sent on to the nav, which is itself divided into two parts, the "analik" (main part) and "dillik" (tongue part). The mouthpiece is used to send the air into the skin.

The tulum is used in Trabzon, Rize, Erzurum and Kars, and in the northern and central regions of Anatolia, as well as in the Thracian region, where the tulum made from lamb and goat skin is called "gayda".
