Scottish Smallpipe in C
Nigel Richard, Edinburgh

Scottish Smallpipe

Smallpipes sound roughly one octave below the Great Highland Bagpipe depending on which key they are in. They are very suitable for indoor playing and great for accompanying a singer.

This Smallpipe (left) in C is - like my Border Pipe - made by Nigel Richard.

Made to my specifications, it has 5 keys, thus considerably enlarging its musical scale, and presenting more options within the octave.

I am also playing Scottish Smallpipes in A and D, also made by Nigel.
