SCP-XXXX in its storage chamber

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: When not in use for research, SCP-XXXX is to be kept in a Standard Safe-Class Storage Locker in Reliquary Research Site-16. Accessible only to Level 2 personnel clearance or above. Wearing of hearing protection/headphones during the tests has become mandatory due to SCP-XXXX piercing and potentially damaging to the tympanic membrane sound.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a musical instrument resembling a medieval Shawm later identified to be Croatian sopela1. SCP-XXXX anomalous properties manifest when played. Subjects using SCP-XXXX will play up to six songs, regardless of prior experience or skill with similar musical instruments.
During the first 15 minutes of use, subjects display an unwillingness to stop using SCP-XXXX. After playing, subjects will claim to be an individual named 'Anton Peteh'.2
After the test, Subjects will retain two sets of memories. One set belongs to their original identity, and the other is believed to belong to Anton Peteh. This state is called The trance state phenomenon and lasts 15 minutes and will from now on be referred to as SCP-XXXX-1.

Addendum XXXX-01: While doing some research on SCP-XXXX D-19916 pointed out that there was something in the bell of the instrument. Inside the bell, a small black & white picture was found along with a handwritten note reading:

Ⰸⰰ Ⰿⰰⱃⰹⰻⱆ

The note translated from Glagolitic alphabet3 to english reads: To Marija

On the back of the picture there are hand written coordinates:

45°08′24″N 13°54′29″E

Addendum XXXX-02: Mirna was discovered to be a name of the longest river in Istria region, Croatia which is presumed to be the birthplace of Anton Peteh.

Dr.██████'s notes: This is a rather interesting yet peculiar case. It's like he made the Subjects suffer everything he suffered when he was alive and tells us his tragic story through this instrument. Fascinating.
