<Gaita pequeña>
Gaita pequeña is a smallpipes set for gaita galega players. Like Scottish Smallpipes, the chanter is cylindrically bored and the sound is milder and quieter than Gaita Galega. Ideal for practicing at home, as well as for indoor sessions. The Fingering is same as Gaita Galega. Due to the straight bored chanter structure, the tone range is one octave (in case of C-Set, from bottom B to high C), provided that extension keys for higher notes can be added.

<Gaita practice chanter>
Hand-made practice chanter for the practice of gaita fingering, made of African Blackwood with German silver ring and imitation ivory mount.

Gaita Galega: A, Bb, C, D
