|Bock/Dudy|| Bagpipe Maker T. Sonoda
|"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:.
Böhmischer Bock (Bohemian Bock)/ The drone pipe is on the shoulder and bent downward.
Egerländer Bock/ The drone pipe is hanging under the bag.
Kleiner Bock (Bohemian Smallpipes)/ Small Bock with straight chanter stock (no goat face sculpture).
