Description: The zubivka [in Ukrainian: Зубівка, Hungarian: Beregfogaras] also known as a Skosivka, Skisna Dudka or Frukanka. The zubivka is considered one of the oldest folk wind instruments in Ukraine and is found primarily in the Carpathian region.

It was first described by wandering Arabic scholars in the 11th century. This instrument is very similar to the telenka. It is an open-ended flute. Played not unlike the floyara by having the breath break against the side of the pipe. This surface is wedge-shaped. The zubivka is usually approximately 60 cm [24 in] long.
