"Bock" pipes ("Dudy" in Czech) are traditional bagpipes of Czech, Southern Germany and Austria, having a single reed in the chanter. Nowadays majority of Bock pipes are bellows-blown. Because of its comfortably mild sound, these bagpipes are often played in Ensemble, for example with violin, clarinet and etc.

We offer several types of Bock, including:

Böhmischer Bock (Bohemian Bock)/ The drone pipe is on the shoulder and bent downward.

Egerländer Bock/ The drone pipe is hanging under the bag.
