Cornemuse de Poitou,  early French bagpipe

Chanter in G, 1 brass key under barrel.

1 drone

Pitch A = 440 Hz

 

The design of this bagpipe has been inspired by the description and engraving of the "hautbois et musettes de Poitou" in Marin Mersenne's Harmonie universelle (1636).

Pulled out from the bag, the chanter can be played as a "hautbois de Poitou", with or without a windcap (see Hautbois de Poitou)
