By Michael Eskin
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Säckpipa is an authentic sounding set of D/G Swedish Bagpipes (Säckpipa)
The Säckpipa is a simple mouth blown bagpipe with a single drone and a lovely, haunting sound.
How to Play:
Touch any key to start the chanter playing. Once started, the chanter plays continuously just like a real Säckpipa.
Play a melody on the chanter by touching the keys.
Touch the drone image to switch the drone on and off.
Stopping the drone also stops the chanter sound.
Touch the "?" to show/hide the note names

Playing Tip: To make your playing sound more authentic and for repeated notes, quickly slide from an adjacent black key to the note you are playing to simulate a piping "cut" ornament.
Audio samples provided by Jonathan Parker from a D/G Säckpipa, made in 1986 by Leif Eriksson.
The instrument images are from an Säckpipa built by Seth Hamon.
