Every once in a while I get bit by the piping bug and go mad looking at all the different pipes out there. I happened upon a review of a recording by Horst Grimm. Horst plays a sordellina constructed by himself.
http://library.bagpipesociety.org.uk/browse/71/1/40
No original sordellinas survive I believe. It sounds like he looked to the music arranged for the instrument and drawings etc to reconstruct.
I had heard of the sordellina before in an article in the Sean Reid Society Journal about it being a possible origin of regulators
http://www.seanreidsociety.org/SRSJ2/th ... ellina.pdf


So i stumbled a clip of Grimm playing the sordellina I think but he plays another instrument first in this live video :
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ob_qlgTsap0

Can anyone tell me what type of pipes are first?
He's getting a very staccato sound. Is it closed ended or is he just using closed fingering to get that sound?
Anyway nice music......



Edit pardon I'd intended this to go into the other pipes forum could mods move it
Though it does touch on origin of the regs....
Edit again I now think it may be a musette de cour he's playing and not the sordellina but I'll leave the other information
Maybe someone has seen a clip of the sordellina ?
Still interested in the first pipe though , he changes the chanter later on in the video

It seems to me these are a type of "muliti-purpose-pipes" constructed by himself, most probably.
The easiest way to find out would be, if you asked him directly, PM sent.

It's definitely a musette de cour. But not at first, but the chanter works the same.

I wrote to Horst. He passed on the the first pipe is a Bock type pipe made by himself and the second is a musette de cour. He makes pipes for his own pleasure and not for sale from what I could gathered.
He did pass on a link to what I believe is a sordellina:

He also told me the first tune is a Polka Pique which I gather is a dance rather than a specific tune but I'm learning it.
All the best,
Patrick

The "polka piquée" is French dance, you're right.

The year Horst had made it we by chance met at this "Sommermusikfest" and he played it for me. BTW - Michael Hubbert was present, too, and joined us. Horst had reconstructed the chanters (double, 1 none [9]) but I don´t think he ever finished the regs. The big problem: All that is left to us are drawings (I took them from Horst´s CD),

(Polyphem is the guy) - nobody seems to be able to say what notes could be played on the regs.

Here is a pic of Horst playing it:

Cheers,
