Bagpipe Maker T. Sonoda
Bayern, Germany
My bagpipe making studio was established in Erding (Southern Germany) in 2008. In 2012 the studio moved from Erding to its northen suburb-town Wartenberg.

Not only commonly known "double reed bagpipes", I also produce single reed bagpipes, which are popular in Eastern Europe and Nordic countries. As far as technically feasible, any custom-made model, and bagpipes designed according to historical painting/literature/sculpture, can be made according to the customer's individual request.

Now my products are played by customers, including some professional players, in more than 20 countries in the world
(the status as of 2017).

Being the specialist of Bavarian local bagpipes "Bock", I have been instructing the annual bagpipe making course in Bavaria since 2008, according to the assignment by the cultural heritage section of the regional government.
