I’ve been wanting to learn the pipes for a while now, but now I am really thinking about doing it. Can anyone help me find a good set of bagpipes that I can get for a reasonable amount of money?
I have been looking into how bagpipes are made, but I have been unable to find anything about why the drones are so often shaped the way they are on the outside. since the bore isn't conical, does the shape of the exterior change how the drone resonated with the reed? can the different ferrules change the tone of the drone?
Conclusions: The exterior shape of the drones is influenced by historical design and is almost entirely decorative. However it seems the mass of the drones themselves may play a part in how well they tune with each other.
I found nothing about whether the ferrule material could change the tones produced, without having interchangeable pieces, it might be hard to test.
Edit: added my final thoughts
I requested a couple weeks ago here that somebody in the Manayunk area play bagpipes outside for everyone.
Somebody showed up in Pretzel Park at 12:00 just now and played for 20 minutes in full proper garb. It was awesome - a lot of people stopped and watched and came out of there houses to listen. I love live music so this was the closest thing I’ve had to normal life in the last six weeks.
To whoever you are, thank you! It was beautiful!
Keep that shit up, it's enhancing the fuck out of my patio beers.
Now only if it could drown out the noise of my neighbour's kids.
If you can play any loud and heroic instrument, there's a small get together at Laurelhurst Park tonight at 6:00. Join if you can!
Hi there! I have a character costume that I'm constantly trying to improve, and one of the things I'm finding very difficult is finding pipes. I don't need the pipes to be functional, but I do want them to look nice, so a lot of the cheap ones online just don't look right. Ideally, I would love to give new purpose to a set that doesn't function or has some other defect. I'm not going to be attempting to play them. Alternatively, suggestions on how to create model versions of either instrument would be helpful as well. Thanks!
Edit: for anyone interested, here is my costume so far! The skirt is actually the tartan of my maternal grandmother's clan. Other upgrades include a nicer mask, more feathers, and a shortsword. (:
Thanks for the afternoon entertainment! It was some cool background music while piecing together our Ikea Puzzles.
She mentioned Somewhere Over the Rainbow or anything by the Beatles.
Does anyone have ideas for where to start or general advice about where to find bagpipe specific sheet music (it doesn't have to be free).
I can't seem to find any sheet music for bagpipe settings of Irish Rebel Songs. Anyone able to point me in a direction? Is there a collection somewhere perhaps?
The leader of my bagpipe band wants to begin practice again. We’ll be playing outdoors in a park. They’re saying that as long as we’re 6 feet apart that we should be safe, is that true?
When playing the bagpipes, you breathe very deeply and blow into a bag and then push the air out of the bag and through 4 reeds to make the music. Can droplets be aerosolized in this way and spread more than 6 feet?
The reason I’m concerned is that there was that choir practice in Washington state that infected almost 90% of the members in March even though they didn’t have any symptomatic members and kept their distance.
With Tonberry having completed phase 2 of the Firmament, they get a really cute track that plays now to celebrate the occasion. It's reminiscent of the Amaro theme, with the mix emphasizing an acoustic guitar and the leifmotif of their expansion being played on a piano. They're both themes celebrating a big player achievement. For the firmament though, it's also implying a lore achievement.
What really draws the ears for the new firmament theme are those bagpipes.
I don't know if there's supposed to be any implications with sharing bagpipes with the Vanu Vanu beastribe ^^^since ^^^i ^^^skipped ^^^the ^^^cutscenes , but Idylshire was a town fou... keep reading on reddit ➡
Not sure whether it’s unpopular or not but I really love bagpipes, especially when in classical music and stuff like that. I’m a bit Scottish so maybe it’s in my blood or something
Looking for a band to accompany us to a respectful protest on the public street by Trump Golf Course while they have their weekly Sunday brunch.
They are attempting to play Toxic by Britney Spears.
To my knowledge there are no bagpipes added yet. Do any of you have a creative solution to create bagpipes (or at least something resembling bagpipes)?
Does anyone in Manayunk have a set of bagpipes? Could you play them outside once in a while please?
I need a quarantine activity. Google had kind of failed me so far.
My 9 year old nephew is keen to learn the pipes, but he's only 9. Is this too young to start learning the chanter, in terms of physical and psychological development. If it is too young, what is the best age to start.....?
Dead from issues popped up today on my mix while I was driving and I started wondering which one I liked better. I listened to them both a few times but I have to give the nod to dead from the issues album. So much haunting emotion in that one and I think we can all relate to the message in it. It brought me back to my teen years and how I felt during that time and dead has always explained it the best. The end begins is epic and heart wrenching. But I’d have to say dead.
I wanted to ask any suggestions on alternative scottish rock bands that integrate the sound of bagpipes on their music. Although I am not Scottish neither European, the bagpipe sound makes me feel something strange. It is a pleasant sound indeed but it has some melancholy on it that makes me feel a bit emotional! I love it.
Thanks in advance!
In the garden home/Oleson area..
...rock on :) you bring a smile to my face every time I hear you!

I am not sure if this is the case in Europe, i assume it may be in Britain, but in both Canada and USA, bagpipes seem to be THE instrument for funerals of military personal. What is the origin of this?
Any bagpipe player out there who can record about a minute of that underlying bagpipe drone? I don't know if it has a name or a key or how it's controlled. I just know that my favorite part of hearing bagpipes is that drone and would like to drop it in to my sampler and play it.
DM me if you are game. Direct comment to talk shit about every Pigface album after "Welcome to Mexico, Asshole" or about how people who prefer soft synths to actual hardware are wrong.
It’s a highlight of my day every day.
Edit: sincerely. Folks weren’t sure if I was being sarcastic or not. There is no sarcasm here
When Megan comes back to the US, she mentions that Owen built his own bagpipes when they were little and played them for a summer. In Season 15 Episode 13, a shooting happens during a Scottish parade, and the bagpipers show up and play outside of the ER.
Jackson: "So, ummm... what's the deal? Is this really bad or really good?"
Owen: "Well, I think it's a beautiful instrument."
I almost missed the writers giving us a joke about Owen being weird. lol.
Hi friends. I've been hearing someone play bagpipes the past few afternoons. Unsure exactly where it's coming from, but can be heard around the SAIL/Palmer Monroe area. Just curious and looking for context. Does anyone have information about who is playing (or why)? Please let me know.
