BELGIUM: If anyone can identify the location, date or other information of this beautiful stained-glass window we'd like to hear about it. The bagpipe is a bit sketchy - it's hard to see if there's even a drone. Its general shape is similar to many seen in European painting and sculpture from the late middle ages.

~ Stamp No. 36: Romania ~ Scott Catalogue No. 1440  Another handsome stamp, which while not showing a lot of detail of the bagpipe has proportions and positions correct. The gaida in numerous variations is found throughout this part of the world, and is represented on our "Bagpipes of the World" CD album.

Gajde: spominje ih već i car Neron, nemoguće ih je svirati bez orijentalne tehnike disanja. Koristila se koža cijele životinje a u mjesto nogu i vrata umetali su se usna cijev i sviraonik koji je imao najčšće 7 rupa i rupu za palac. U srednjem vijeku postoji u dvije vrste: cilindrična unutarnja cijev i jednostruki jezičak ili stožasta unutarnja cijev i dvostruki jezičac. Prepuhavanje je moguće jedino kod gajdi s stožastom unutarnjom cijevi. Cijev za bordunski bas nije uobičajena.

From a set of 19 military uniform stamps. Like several other stamps depicting bagpipes not native to the stamp-issuing country, there are problems with the illustration. The pipe only has two drones, and the shorter looks to be a baritone rather than tenor. The chanter, with a pronounced bell at its mouth, has a profile like a continental European pipe rather than one from the Highlands. Hand position is tentative and it looks like this piper is struggling not to puff out his cheeks.

SOVIET UNON: This and the next two stamps are particularly nice; they are not only well drawn and printed, but depict scarce bagpipes about which we would like to know more. Each presents instruments from different Soviet republics. The pipe shown here has similarities in appearance to various Eastern European bagpipes.
