A p?t?tara in Te Papa, Museum of New Zealand.

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).[1] 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.[2]
