If you want a taragota for display purposes, you can find them for nothing being manufactured out of Pakistan out of some real nasty wood.

Really?  Do you have a link?

Why on earth would anyone want a non functional musical instrument? Pointless

Found this image on Instagram yesterday.
I believe there's an Eb clarinet at the front there...

That's Gregus Pal from Hungary.  I bought a tenor tarogato from him a few years ago. 

Yes, that's an Eb clarinet at the front.  I didn't know he'd made one of those.  That's an octavin that he's holding.

The alto tarogatos on the left are copies of a very rare Stowasser that Scott Robinson measured for him.  The ones of the right I believe are copies of a Shunda instrument with a simpler mechanism and smaller tone holes.  As I remember, those ones only have a single octave key (like Shunda's soprano tarogatos) and are very difficult to play.
