Tabor pipes are instruments with 3 holes, to be played with one hand while beating a small drum (the tabor) with the other.  By using overtones, a scale of an octave and a half is possible.  Very popular all over Europe in Shakespeare's time, they are used in England for Morris dancing, and in the Basque provinces of Spain ("txistu" and "txirula") and France ("galoubet"). 

We stock Susato high and low D pipes.  Other keys are available, contact us.
