Uillean bagpipes 

The uilleann pipes are the characteristic national bagpipe of Ireland. The bag of the uilleann pipes is inflated by means of a small set of bellows strapped around the waist and the right arm. The instrument most typically is tuned in the key of D.

The Irish or Uilleann pipes have reached quite an advanced state of development. Unlike most other pipes, the reed will overblow, giving them a range of two octaves, and the addition of regulators gives them an extra dimension. The regulators are closed ended chanters each of a different pitch, and speak when a key is pressed, the keys are arranged side by side so chords can be played (this requires great skill). Uilleann (or Elbow) pipes usually play in D, and the full set has a chanter, three drones, and three keyed regulators. The half set has no regulators, and the practice set has no drones either. Previously beginners would usually start with a practice set, and later trade in for a half set with drones. However it is now possible to learn the fingering before you learn to operate the bellows. It is best not to use the drones until you have good control of the bellows and bag, as the drones use extra air, and make it harder to keep steady pressure for the chanter.
