When I developed my Medievalpipes I wanted to build an historical instrument with the typical appearance and sound of that era
but at the same time something which considerably increased the musical possibilities.

The conical chanters, which have a double reed,
can be overblown giving a range of 1½ octaves.
Furthermore nearly all semi-tones are possible.
The Medievalpipes have, as a rule, only one (more loud-sounding) drone, with a single reed.
The drone is tuned two octaves under the chanters’ lowest tone ("6-fingering").

The Medievalpipes have a beautiful medieval sound funnel,
which works, to some extent, as an amplifier.

The instrument is usually built in the following keys:

  • A/D
  • G/C
  • F/Bb
  • D/G

(6-fingering/3-fingering)
