The bagpipe experience, with a level control!
The bagpipe has been a popular instrument across all of Europe for centuries, and its greatest visibility has been achieved by the famous Scottish Great Highland bagpipe. The bagpipe is certainly a very respectable instrument, but its loudness and the fact that it keeps hardly in tune is why it is the source of many jests among musicians.
Why do bagpipers walk when they play? To get away from the noise.
What's the difference between a bagpipe and an onion? No one cries when you chop up a bagpipe.
What's the difference between the Great Highland and Northumbrian bagpipes? The Great Highland burns longer.
What's the difference between a bagpipe and a trampoline? You take off your shoes when you jump on a trampoline.
And a last one, as a special thanks to my former colleague Gareth Lewis who helped me recording these pipes:
What's the difference between Gareth's rehearsing the bagpipes during his lunch break, and the fire alert signal? Everyone keeps calm during the fire evacuation.
