The Plasticfanpiper lives up to his name demonstrating a homemade ‘membrane pipe’ apparently built from straws balloons, and plastic valves – must be a pretty sturdy build to stand up to the air pressure.
A quick search for “membrane bagpipe” turned up this interesting how to –
The results produce a tone somewhat like a clarinet – quite nice actually.

Excellent presentation, and it has a great sound.
I’d like to add additional pipes like the other guy’s to get that bagpipe-like sound (and drive everyone crazy!).
This is really interesting. Thanks for posting. PVC needs to get some sort of reward from the DIY community!
Wow! Much cooler sound than the looks would lead me to believe.
