panpipes (syrinx) Primitive musical wind instrument, probably originating in Asia. Several tubes of cane, reed, bamboo or clay, of different lengths, are joined together side by side. Blown across one end, each pipe produces one note of a scale. Panpipes are associated with the pastoral Greek god Pan.
