Choosing the right Zurna / Zorna

Hello,

I have decided to take up learning how to play the Zurna and I have found a seller in Turkey.  They have many types of Zurnas and it appears that two of them are commonly used in our music, but I am not sure which one exactly or if both are just used for separate purposes.

There are others, but I believe this is what I need to choose from.  Am I on the right track?

Many thanks!

PS: There is also D Zurna 25cm https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kpHPQmnIP08
