The ''xun'' is a Chinese made of clay or ceramic. It is one of the oldest Chinese instruments. The ''xun'' is made in several sizes and is in the shape of an egg. It has a blowing hole on top and generally eight smaller finger holes .

The Korean equivalent is the ''hun'' . In Japan, the same type of instrument is called ''tsuchibue'' .
