Czech Dudy

Post  Yuri on Sun Dec 12, 2010 6:08 pm

Comes from a book published in Czechoslovakia in the 1960-es. Sorry for the difficult size, I don't seem to be able to resize it in any way. If someone is determined, they still can work out the measurements. They are all in mms, of course.
The reeds are brass or copper tubes, with lead plugs filed back, and cane tongues.
At the end there is a link to the Photobucket full-size pics. The link is for the first photo. To get the rest, change the number in thy URL.

These plans are based on an instrument by Karel Janecek. These are also the plans sent to me by Nicolas (thanks again).
I reproduced this instrument a couple of years ago, and it works fine. It plays in the key of E flat, the tonic being the tone of the bottom hand's middle finger. The chanter bore of 8 mm seems to be a mistake (although it can work), 7 mm is better. On my own original Janecek instrument the bore is 6.8 mm.
It should be noted that Czech bagpipers generally play with the bag under the right arm, and the right hand on top. For a "normal" righthanded player the positions of the stock holes in the bag and the bellows valve should be reversed.
