PVC Bagpipes


They’re supposed to sound great. I swear. Well at least compared to bagpipes. They should only cost you about $5 not including the reeds. I doubt many of you are going to rush to the hardware store to build these, since you need to be pretty familiar with the instrument beforehand. That being said: I’m sure the submitter will get some great mileage out of his pipes without the fear of damage and I do actually like bagpipe music.

    Bagpipes are pretty rough to learn. Because of the drone pipe, and the fact that the chanters must be in tune with the drone, they’re often not on a “standard” scale. Serious kudos to anyone who can master these things.

    Gotta watch the pipes music.

    Makes me want to don the garb and go after some British.
    And I was born in New Jersey!

    The minstrel boy to the war is gone…

    maybe we can officially move out of “beta” status if we adopt a new logo :P

  8. uilleann (irish) pipes are the only way to go. Highland pipes are crap compared to uilleann.

  9. I make bagpipes myself.
    I don’t know about pvc pipes, I would have tried a different plastic first, or perhaps metal tubing.

    How about the scottish or irish small pipes? These sound better anyhow
