Bagpipe FAQ : There is more than one kind of bagpipe? : The Uilleann (Union) Bagpipe :
Do Uilleann pipes play a lot differently than Highland pipes?
|Moderator: firstname.lastname@example.org (inherited from parent)|
|Yes. The Uilleann pipes have a much wider range than do the Highland pipes (two octaves versus nine notes). Also, the spacing of the finger holes on the chanter is quite different, as is the fingering technique.
