The sipsi is a Turkish woodwind instrument. It is a clarinet-like, single-reed instrument with six finger holes, used mainly in folk music. Its size varies from region to region. The word "sipsi" is probably onomatopoeic, and is related to "zıpçi", meaning "whistle".

A sipsi can also be a name for the maroccan pipe, used to smoke kif - an inferior form of marihuana.

The instrument's range is greater than its six finger holes would suggest, the upper registers being attained by breath control.
