Scottish Bagpipe

The Scottish bagpipe has three pipes of the same size, plus a slightly longer one, composed of different turned parts, usually made of blackwood. The bag is usually made of sheep or elk skin. To produce sound the musician or interpreter blows air into the bag of the instrument to then be expelled by the pressure exerted with the arm on the body of the instrument, in this way the air is released by side tubes, the musician controls the air outlet with his fingers plugging the holes in the tubes so that the resulting sound is the desired one.

The Blackwood whose density is 1300 kg/m3 is the most used wood in the construction of the bagpipe due to its acoustic properties, these give the instrument a clear, bright sound, very recognizable anywhere in the world and evokes a sense of long tradition for all lovers of traditional Scottish music.
