OK my first instinct was to laugh, but at least you found the problem out. Between a piping instructor and myself, it took quite a while to discern an issue with a piping student's pipes.. It basically had two valves in place for lack of a better verbal description.

That looks exactly like my Crisler valve.
(Except for how it's tied on. ;-)

Good eye! 'Tis indeed a Crisler!

Solid blowstick, adjustable length, with an oval mouthpiece.
