Bagpipes

Scope note

Composite reedpipes consisting of an air-tight skin, cloth, or rubber bag which serves as the air reservoir, one or more chanters with fingerholes on which the melody is played, and often one or more drone pipes which sound a continuous background to the melody. All sounding pipes have reeds and are attached to the bag by being inserted into tubular wooden stocks which are tied into openings in the bag.
