From Pan (“Greek god of nature”) + pipe.
panpipe (plural panpipes)
- A set of panpipes
1988 May 27, Neil Tesser, “Albert Mangelsdorff”, in Chicago Reader:
- No matter that the trombone would seem to be an instrument particularly ill-suited to the purpose; in Mangelsdorff's hands, it might as well be anything from a panpipe to a cello.
