Great Highland Bagpipe


Great Highland Bagpipe is the most famous and popular bagpipe in the world. The word “bagpipe” is strongly associated with the image of a Scotsman and many people believe that the bagpipe is a Scottish invention. In fact, bagpipes, as well as many other musical instruments, came to Europe from the East. According to one of the existing versions, the bagpipe appeared in Scotland thanks to the Vikings. It was brought there by the Normans. Another version says that the bagpipes were brought to the territory of Scotland by the ancient Romans.
Bagpipes were known even in antiquity. The first instrument, identified as a bagpipe, dates back to 3000 BC. It was found during excavations of the ancient city of Ur in the territory of the kingdom of Sumer. The Roman emperor Nero played various musical instruments, including bagpipe. Different types of bagpipes were widely distributed on the lands of ancient Slavic states.

Sax was born in 1814 in Brussels (Belgium) and grew up in the trade of instrument making. His father was an expert in instrument making. The boy had already become an expert by the age of six.
