Welcome. I've been quiet for a while here, but this looks as good a post as any to use to say, I'm still here, and to welcome you to the goup. This is such an interesting idea to me, that anyone would ...

Hi
Now I have converted all my pipes so I can play them bellows-blown, which I think makes life easy, and you can sing!

I suspect that is what both Olle and i maintain, that most pipers feel that different woods make a difference.

Thank you for your insightful comments. A number of forums on piping and pipesmaking contain a great deal of folklore about the qualities of materials used for making instruments. Such belief ...

I beg to differ. Single reeds are definitely much more trouble than double reeds. The reason many pipers in the world assume single reeds are easier is that most pipers only have them in their drones. ...

No, I have not used quills to make reeds before. However, both hard plastic tubing and thin metal tubing work great. You cut the body of the reed from the tubing, cut or grind a flat surface on one si ...

Olle,

What you describe is essentially a Diple. That is an Eastern European bagpipe (Dalmatian) which as this picture demonstrates bears a great deal of similarity to the Sackpipa.
