I want to translate the phrase
It's just like a big recorder
where "recorder" is the musical instrument. The generic Latin for "flute" seems to be "tibia" (pipe), so I settled on using the Latin for the Italian "flauto dolce", which at first glance would be "tibia dulcis" but I fear I don't have the right inflection on "sweet". My uneducated attempt is:
Tamquam (or possibly Quasi) magna tibia dulcis est
Is this even close, or is there a better way of expressing this?
