The diplica is an ancient, clarinet-like, single-reed instrument which was played in different forms in many parts of Croatia, but now survives only in the Baranja region.

Diplicas are usually made of reed, but can also be made of elder, straw, goose feathers, etc. The instrument consists of a pipe with a few (usually five) finger holes, and a single reed also made of reed or elder. It is usually in the key of E, although it can be made in C, D, or F.
