Schäferpfeife in G/C

The schäferpfeife (also known as the Sackpfeife) is a type of German bagpipe, characterised by two forward-facing drones in a common stock.

This Flemish bagpipe is also known as schäferpfeife, as it is similar in appearance. The Flemish pipes have fifth or octave drones, and the fingering system is nowadays generally identical to that of the French cornemuse du centre, as this fingering system is very stable in tone throughout the 1.5 octave range of the pipes.
