Guide to the Welsh 'Veuze’ Pipes

While one revived Welsh bagpipe is based on the Pibgorn, a second variety is more similar to the Breton Veuze, a loud, mouth-blown double-reed pipe.

Welsh Veuze-style pipes come in a variety of keys (D and Bb are most common) use open fingering, have a nine-note scale, and will cross-finger to allow most chromatic notes. They have a striking (though not strident) sound, which makes them ideal accompaniment for dancing.
