Bombard (Breton language: talabard, ar vombard in the ; French: bombarde), is a oboe family, contemporary conical bore double reed instrument widely used to play traditional Breton music. A bombard player is known as a talabarder after 'talabard', the older Breton name for the bombard.

Although it is a member of the oboe family, however, describing it as an oboe can be misleading since it has a broader and very powerful sound, vaguely resembling a trumpet.
