Default Name that instrument! Help!

Was wondering what the instrument is that comes in during the chorus. Like the sound of it. Anybody here knows? I've been bothering Facebook friends already...

can't hear it well enough on these crappy laptop speakers but sounds like a mix between a violin and keyboard playing an uilleann pipe sound

Uilleann pipe - that's new to me... Cool to think if these guys used one.

That's nothing like uileann pipes. It's just a violin or viola or maybe cello. THIS is uileann pipes...

(From 1:42 onwards) How could you even think that was uillean pipes? Sounds nothing like it.

It probably had something to do with those "crappy speakers"...

Yeah but anyway, you're right - the sound is closer to a string instrument.

If i didn't misunderstand what you're asking...it seems to me like a larsen effect of a distorted guitar...nothing extremely researched but fits perfectly with the track's soul

A pitched version of feedback, hmm, not entirely impossible I guess. Didn't read the wiki page that carefully. It seems though - if I listen in headphones the instrument introduced in the chorus plays different notes in the left and right speaker.

I've just listened with headphones...you're right, surely there are at least two notes, lower frequences on the right and higher on the left...

Yes... Still a mystery, this.
