Säckpipa - Play the Swedish Bagpipes

Säckpipa is an authentic sounding set of Swedish Bagpipes.

The Säckpipa is a simple mouth blown bagpipe with a single drone and a lovely, haunting sound that is very popular for traditional music in Sweden.

Touch any note to start the chanter playing. Once started, the chanter plays continuously just like a real Säckpipa.

To stop the sound, touch the "Stop" button on the upper right of the screen.

Touch the drone image to switch the drone on and off.

Touch the "?" to show/hide the note names.

Touch the "i" to bring up the controls where you can select between D or E as the fundamental pitch, and between Standard and Dorian mode drones.

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.

You may play along with the music on your device by starting the music track playing on your device, then launching the app.

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.
