In this work on woodwind musical instruments in antebellum America, the instruments themselves are naturally a primary focus, with the scope limited to Western European types. This excludes ethnic instruments of the various cultures in this hemisphere, but includes woodwinds brought by colonists immigrating to the New World. Of primary interest is the topic of instruments manufactured in Colonial America and in the United States of America. Woodwinds imported from England formed the majority of early wind instruments in the colonies which became the United States of America
