|Hümmelchen|| Bagpipe Maker T. Sonoda
|Hümmelchen (German small pipes) is an instrument from the renaissance
age, and nowadays it is one of the most loved bagpipes in German speaking
countries. It can be easily blown and sounds comfortably mild.
Hümmelchen is a quite flexible and practical instrument, suitable for varieties of tunes, from ancient music to traditional folk, for solo performance or in Ensemble.
