A brief history and analysis of the great highland bagpipe will be discussed. Although the bagpipe may have originated several thousands of years ago, the great highland bagpipe, distinguished by three drones and a chanter, is only a few hundred years old. A discussion of the components and operation will be given. In addition, spectral analysis of the drones and chanter will be discussed and how the harmonic content of the drones support the notes played on the chanter. A spectral analysis and sound pressure levels of chanter reeds of varying ages, strengths, and materials will also be presented.
