Introducing the Percussion Plus Honestly Made Double row 15 note pan pipes
The Percussion Plus Peruvian pan pipes contain 15 pipes of various lengths secured with an attractive woven band. These pan pipes are fixed into two rows and are tuned diatonically.
The wooden pan pipes are played by blowing horizontally across the top of the instrument to create a flute-like sound and are extremely popular in folk music, particularly from southern America and central Europe.
Also known as Zampoña, these pipes are handmade in Peru using sustainably sourced materials and traditional methods.
See below for more information about the Honestly Made range of musical instruments from Percussion Plus.
These items are musical instruments not toys and there may be small parts on or in some of them. Younger players should use them under supervision.
Manufactured using traditional techniques
Every single one of these pan pipes are handmade by and independent maker, using traditional methods and techniques. The cane used is sustainably sourced and creates a brilliant sounding instrument. The pipes are bound together with vibrant and colourful band that, although simply put together, is rather striking and effective.
How to play
Blow across the top of each tube to create a sound, using a similar technique that you would for a flute. Although the technique used and sound created can be likened to a flute, the breathy quality and easy to learn nature of the instrument make it perfect for all types of folk music.
These panpipes from Percussion Plus are a fun instrument to play and learn about in school, to be performed with in folk bands of all abilities, and more.
