I've never seen plans for these kind on the Internet. In fact, I'm not sure if they exist anywhere outside Germany and German-influenced musical areas.
What I do know is that the whole approach has been based on Scottish pipes, with altered fingering. (For the power, in case it's not very obvious.) So, if you cannot find anything, the Highland pipes are a starting point. The look is, of course, a matter of only appearances, it's what is inside that counts.
Good luck.

Hi there,

I saw some plans of schaper pfeiff, it's mittelalter based on the same?
I also have plans of Albrecht Durer bagpipe, with two drones.

Thanks to the community Smile

No, these are based (probably loosely) on something like the Scottish smallpipes. The difference is, the Highland pipes and derivatives have a very pronounced taper (outwards, that is, trumpet-like), and corresponding reeds. This makes them immensely powerful The smallpipes have straight bores, narrow ones at that (you are talking some 4-6 mm bores), and the corresponding reeds. The two cannot be mixed-and-matched, by the way. I mean, the reeds will not work in the other kind. Smallpipes have a MUCH softer sound.
