- The key to great bagpipe tone is steady bag pressure. The Bagpipe Gauge is an incredibly powerful tool to help pipers improve their steadiness. It gives you instant visual feedback, showing you the exact amount of pressure required to play your pipes and showing you exactly how steady you are keeping the pressure.
- Simply plug the Bagpipe Gauge into one of your drones and attach the Bagpipe Gauge to your blowpipe. Strike up your pipes and watch the steadiness of your bag pressure. You’ll be amazed at your instant improvement.

“The Bagpipe Gauge has been a life saver!! I was so frustrated when I just didn’t understand what my teacher was telling me about steady pressure. It became crystal clear when I started using the bagpipe gauge. It has dramatically improved my bag pressure and reduced issues with tuning.Honestly, it has made for more pleasurable playing (for both me and the listener, LOL). In addition, it has allowed me to better understand what to listen for in both my chanter and drones. I feel (and my teacher agrees) it has lead to better balance and “tone”. I won’t say I’m world class by any stretch of the imagination, but I’ve significantly improved and I “get” it now. That’s all I can ask for at my level.” -Piper from USA
