But having played a wind instrument, I can appreciate the technology that allows you to keep playing while you take a breath...
You still need to define what is ‘superior’

......A weapon that is useful when fending off a black pudding-wielding attacker.
Agree, for your personal opinion, and if that is what the OP is looking for then he has defined superior and his criteria for judgment - superior is "in the opinion of @Bored chemist "
a musical instrument, and not as a weapon
Since I have not actually offered an opinion, mine is not the one that counts here, is it?

The hyphen convention is admittedly anomalous but IIRC Fowler, Gowers and The Times would judge Pseudo to be correct in this instance. "Black pudding" is a specific type of pudding, and pudding-wielding is a known military art described in detail by Gunner Milligan, S in several scripts (BBC archives) and artillery manuals (including "Adolf Hitler - My Part in His Downfall"). See also white pudding-throwing and haggis-hurling, though the military origin of the vegetarian haggis is dubious.
