General Questions About Bagpipe Bands Pipe Band Quiz Questions
1. What Instruments do you play in a Pipe Band?
The instruments usually and mostly played in a Pipe Band are Bagpipes, Side Drums, Tenor Drums, and Bass Drums.
Most of the times, there are about twice as many Pipers as Drummers; usually, a typical band might have 12 Pipers,
4 Side Drummers, 2 Tenor Drummers, and 1 Bass Drummer.
2. Why do you guys march so slowly?
The traditional Pipe Band marching tempo is about 80-88 beats per minute. This is taken from some of the older military bands such as the Fife and Drum Corps which also march at this tempo. In the ancient times just like 18th and early 19th centuries, roads were not in as good shape as they are today and faster marching tempos were usually not practical.

The music has been adapted to this older tempo and it is mostly too complex to be played properly at what is nowadays considered to be a typical marching tempo, which ranges from about 100-120 beats per minute. If you ever happen to visit some place like Colonial Williamsburg you will listen to the Fifes and Drums playing at tempos very similar to those of a Pipe Band. But Pipe Bands do play at faster tempos as well, when playing dance music.
3. Why do the drummers in some bands wear checked hats and the pipers wear plain?
In some regiments of the British Army, the Bagpipers used to be personal employees of
the Commander of the Regiment rather than the Crown, while the Drummers were always soldiers employed by the Crown.
The soldiers employed by the Crown use to wear the checked (more properly called “diced”) hats.
Some military and even civilian bands maintained this distinction long after it had any basis in reality, though the practice is now dying out.

4. Why do you see Drummers wearing a leopard skin?
This is likewise an old British Army tradition. Strictly speaking, the privilege of wearing the leopard skin was granted to specific Army regiments as a regimental honor for meritorious service, usually in areas of Africa. Because of it, the use of the leopard skin in civilian bands is in somewhat had a peculiar and bad taste.
(Note that modern bands usually do not use real leopard skins but imitations, because of the endangered species acts enforced by the government).
5. Are there different levels of pipe bands?
Pipe bands usually compete against each other other contests. These contests are offered under the auspices of the local Pipe Band Association, and the exact rules differ between each Association.
In most of the countries of the world, the Associations are national, but in the United States and Canada they are regional. In most of the world, there are 4 levels of pipe bands, from Grade 1 (the highest level) to Grade 4.

General Questions About Bagpipes
6. What do you call those things?
The most populat name for the instrument is a Pipe or a Bagpipe. You can specify a peculiar type of pipe by calling it a “Indian Bagpipe” or a “Punjabi Pipe”, for example. Some pipers will use the plural name of the instruments to refer to a single instrument.
(pipes or bagpipes or a set of pipes whichever is easy to remember or easy to use by popularity ), which is also considered acceptable. Some of the other names you sometimes hear tend to annoy modern pipers, especially if they include references to a “stand” of pipes.

7. What kind of instrument is a Bagpipe?
The Bagpipe belongs to the woodwind family. A bagpipe consists of a bag, a “chanter” which carries the melody, and usually one or more “drones” which play a chord. There is also some way to fill the bag, either with a “blowpipe” which allows the piper to fill the bag by blowing into it, or with a bellows which let the bagpiper artist team player to pump in the air into the bag.
On most of the bagpipes, the chanter usually uses a double reed mostly
looking alike like to an oboe or bassoon reed, and the drones each use one reeds which are concerned to those used in a clarinet or saxophone. A few kinds of bagpipe use double reeds for both the chanter and the drones. Each drone uses a separate reed.
8. What is the material this bag is made from?
There are different kinds of bags used by pipers. The mostly one traditional bag is manufactured from sheepskin, but other kind of bags might include “elkhide” (a variety of cowhide) and synthetic materials such as Gore-tex.
9. Are there different types of Bagpipes available in the country?
There is a very wide range of different types of pipes being played across the globe. The most famous and the popular is usually known as the Highland BagPipe or the Irish War Pipe, or seldom it is as just the Great Pipe (Piob Mhor in Gaelic).
Various other types of pipes belongs to Britain and Ireland which include the Scottish Small Pipes, the Irish Uilleann or Union Pipes, and the Northumbrian Pipes.

Nearly all cultures in basically and traditionally Europe and the Middle East have a very pure and traditional native bagpipe, although some have nearly died out. For example, the Spanish people usually play a kind of bagpipe which they traditionally call a Gaita, and the Italians usually have a pipe called a Zampogna.
The different types of pipe usually have different types and quantity of drones and mostly use different note fingerings on to the chanter.
Such as the Northumbrian and the Uilleann pipe, which have a very big and large number of keys on the chanter; others have few or none keys on the chanter. And this makes a whole lot of difference. A few Bagpipes to name, such as the Uilleann pipe, even have simple valves (“regulators”) on some of the drones to allow the piper to alter the chord of the drones while playing.
10. Where were the Bagpipes first invented?
Nobody really knows actually. But Now we are enjoying it in India as well as most of the bagpiper band play a vital role in entertainment everywhere. The ancestral instrument mainly comes from one of the most ancient Mediterranean civilizations, probably before 100 BC, and it was carried throughout the globe mainly in Europe by the Romans.
The earliest examples consist of just the “chanter” portion, possibly with a companion “drone” tube, which was mostly played by the technique of “circular breathing” to maintain a constant tone to let the listener enjoy the melodious tunes. In the ancient times, some unknown person got the idea that this could be made easier by adjoining the chanter to a bag with a blowpipe.
Various forms of bagpipes were played throughout Europe during the times of Middle Ages, until modern orchestral instruments started to displace some older traditional instruments about the time of the new revolutions. However the Bagpipe usually continued to be played in most of the rural areas and more isolated parts from then to now this day.

11. Can you make them play any louder or softer?
No, sorry. Most of the pipes, including the Highland pipe, have no other way to be played at various volumes without going away off-pitch. A Bagpiper may set up the Bagpipe beforehand to accommodate it with the location, but at that moment, you are not able to change the volume while you’re playing the bagpipers.
This, along with the fact that the bag produces a continuous melodious stream of air, produces a need to provide more emphasis on some notes than others at that time, and to separate different notes of the same pitch. Because it ultimately make the whole tunes melodious while playing and the audience listeners enjoy it.
Most such effects (including “staccato” effects) are produced by fingering fine techniques, which traditionally vary between the different kinds of pipes. The exception to this is the Uilleann pipe, which let the bagpiper player close off all of the holes in the chanter so that the chanter produces no sound at that moment. Hence makes the whole tune worth listening. All other Bagpipes rely completely on “grace notes” or similar techniques to separate notes and provide emphasis.
12. What type of pipe does a pipe band play?
Pipe bands usually play the so-called “Highland” or “Irish War” pipe; but most other pipes are played only by soloists. A few bands in Ireland play the “Brian Boru” bagpipe, which is a adapted version of the Great Pipe that adds keys to extend its complete range; and some bands in Brittanny in France play the French Biniou pipe with Bombards, which are shawm-like instruments. That is also very popular there till now.

The Highland Bagpipe
13. What is a Highland Bagpipe?
The Highland Bagpipe is the most popular and the most familiar kind of bagpipe. It has 3 drones, 2 tenor drones each tuned one octave below the chanter, and one bass drone tuned two octaves below the chanter. The drones on the Highland pipe have no way for adjusting the pitch while playing the tunes thus make it different from that of other bagpipers, so they play a single background chord usually it has some very vital effect on the audience and listeners really enjoy it.
Often, scale on chanter is made to adjust to feel it a mixture this constant chord. Its a mouth-blown pipe: the bagpiper band player blows into the bag through a blowpipe to supply the air into it. A valve in the blowpipe retain the air from escaping.
14. What is the history of the Highland Pipe?
In Ancient time the Highland Bagpipe was played by the Scottish army (and, later, Scottish regiments in the British army. It was also used to played for dances and parties by both soldiers or so called jawans and civilians. The Irish War BagPipe was basically and traditionally originally is a similar instrument but had only two drones, a single tenor and a bass. And that is the major difference for other bands herein.
In present times,, the use of the two-drone pipe has nearly vanished and nowadays the terms “Highland Pipe” and “Irish War Pipe” are used interchangeably to understand to the three-drone Great Pipe. Like the Highland pipe, the Irish War Pipe became similar to the rest of the world because of its use in the British Army.
15. How much do those things cost?
Well, well, well. You may pay anywhere from around $1050 up to over $8000 for a new bagpiper. The price depends upon the manufacturer and the amount of ornamentation. Most of the expensive bagpipe models are heavily ornamented with a lot of silver and so forth; usually it does not have any effect on the tone, and the melody never fade away or makes any difference.
It’s purely for the show. Some very fine instruments priced at the lower end of the scale,
and you can often get a bargain on a second hand pipe. You may see new bagpipes available in the market in the price bracket of $1500; actually these are second grade instruments that are not worth purchasing, mainly if you’re a novice bagpiper player don’t know what to do to deal with setup problems.
Usually a good used pipe becomes available which is worth purchasing for that price or less, especially if it has only cosmetic damage that does not affect the tone or play ability of the instrument. This is most of the time a better deal than trying to get by with a cheaper poor instrument.
16. What are the names of some good manufacturers of Highland Pipes?
Well, well, well, this can cause a great deal of controversy even between top pipers. Some of the most widely honoured names of older pipe makers include MacDougall, Henderson, Glen, Starck, Robertson, and Lawrie.
Most of these companies are still in the bagpipe making business. Some of the most respected modern makers include Naill, MacLellan, Kron, and MacCallum. Many other makers also make good instruments, so this list should not be considered complete and can be considered only for the reference purpose only.
Also, many good pipers find that some of the makers on this list would not be in their top choices If you are unable to decide as to which bagpipe you like, you should have a discussion with your choice with someone you know have deep knowledge of bagpipers and drums and is your trustworthy and don’t forget to listening to a variety of instruments before purchasing them.
17. Are pipe makers equally noted for their drones and chanters?
In that case, usually it can be said,, no. A few makers such as Naill are widely known as both fine drone and chanter makers; others in case, such as Henderson and Lawrie, are noted mainly for their drones only; and others, such names as Sinclair, primarily famous and popular for their chanters.
Now on the same track, it is easier to find a pipe whose chanter and drones are made by different makers, or to find that a piper has more than one chanter to use in a single pipe.
Hire Bagpiper Military Army Band for Ajmer Alwar Banswara Baran for economical rates.
18. What is meant by “matched chanters?”
In a bagpipe band, it is very common to have all of the pipers play the same make and model of chanter. There are many reasons for this:
Mostly, different makers of brands of chanters tend to tune them at a little different pitches.
Many brands of chanters respond differently to different reeds. So it is advisable to use a single maker of chanter which makes it easier to select reeds for the members of the band.
Often a particular combination of chanter and reed will have particular notes that tend to be sharp or flat. Using matched chanters often makes it easier as it far more easier to know how to adjust each chanter to bring it into perfect tune.
The tonal quality of different makes of chanters can vary, and matched chanters can make for a more “unified” band sound.
