Description

The PLUS model, which has been greatly expanded compared to the Classic version, offers the fingering of the Great Highland Bagpipe, Scottish Smallpipe, Medieval Market Bag pipe and Gaita Gallega, as well as the fingering of the French Cornemuse(shepherd’s pipe) and the baroque fingering of Hümmelchen and Dudey.

For the semi-closed, French one, the second thumb ‘hole’ for the right hand is of course also present.

The DegerPipe II offers the possibility of overblowing and playing vibratos! The fingerings are largely identical to the usual semi-closed playing of the French bagpipes and the Hümmelchen and Dudey instruments. Exception to overblow simply remains open the thumb of the left hand. This small change is necessary because the instrument is built without a bag and a replacement handle had to be found for the otherwise higher playing pressure. After playing for a short time, however, it becomes apparent that this change is easy to grasp.

All settings are saved when the device is switched off and are active again the next time it is switched on. Resetting to the company setting is also easily possible at any time. The second thumbhole for the semi-closed shepherd’s pipe fingering is naturally present on the PLUS model. Scottish fingerings can be played with normal G or with sharp G for myxolydian and ionic tunes. The intonation of the chanter can be switched from pure tuning to equal temperament.
