David Naill smallpipes are available in both Polypenco and African Blackwood, bellows or mouth-blown. They are made in the key of A and D to suit different types of music and instrumental line-ups. Smallpipes can provide the perfect accompaniment to traditional acoustic instruments such as the fiddle, guitar, whistle, flute, banjo, and mandolin. The volume is ideal for inside settings, and they are well-suited to playing together in small harmony groups or solo. The finger technique is the same as that for the Highland Bagpipe, so the transition to smallpipes is not too difficult for pipers. All instruments come with Eezedrone reeds. The Blackwood set also includes a Kilter carry case.
