Dick Greenhaus - I don't play a pipe & tabor, but doesn't the pipe have a hole in the back that's played by the thumb? Wouldn't you have to drill this in order to make a tabor pipe from a whistle?

What does a tabor drum look like? Does it have a snare? What diameter? Does it hang from the left wrist? I assume you play the pipe with your left hand and the drum with your right, but I've been known to be wrong before.
