Panpipes

One of the world's most ancient instruments, bamboo panpipes are found in many cultures but have become almost the national instrument of Peru, Bolivia and Rumania. SOUND WORLD panpipes are in a single row, usually comprising 8 notes in an accurately tuned major scale, but any other scales or specified keys can be made. Higher scales (shorter and smaller pipes) tend to be easier to play. With distinctive knotting and decoration, SOUND WORLD's panpipes make a fulfilling instrument or an interesting present.

Panpipes can also be used as extremely reliable Pitchpipes - the ancient Chinese kept a bamboo tube (the ‘yellow bell’) in the Imperial Palace as a reference tone for the tuning of all instruments. SOUND WORLD makes accurately tuned pitch pipes using ‘white-note’ scales (A-B-C-D etc) which make a valid alternative to plastic pitch pipes used by conductors and choirleaders. In the example below, the pitchpipe is playing the scale A-B-C-D-E-F-G
