What is a Scottish Small Pipe?
Moderator: (inherited from parent)
The Scottish Small Pipe (SSP) is a bellows-blown instrument and a sort of "cousin" to the GHB. Scottish small pipes usually come with three drones, but in most cases there will be a bass, baritone, and tenor drone as opposed to the 1-bass 2-tenor GHB setup. SSP chanters come in a variety of keys, with A and D being most common. Chanter fingering is similar to the GHB.
