The p?t?tara is a type of trumpet used by the M?ori people of New Zealand. It is customarily made with a carved wooden mouthpiece and a bell made from New Zealand's small native conch shells (Charonia lampas rubicunda) or triton shell (Charonia tritonis). Larger p?t?tara were particularly prized as the triton shell was rarely found and only sometimes washed up on the beaches in the Far North.
