Bagpipes Made Out Of PVC, Duct Tape & Shopping Bag

January 31, 2013


This is a video of Scott Martin (who receives two bonus points for the 'To Victory!' Dalek poster behind him) playing the bagpipes he and buddy Todd Medema made out of nothing but PVC, duct tape, and a plastic shopping bag. *eying Christmas tree* Apparently they were just terrible human beings last year. Still, impressive work, guys, but I just managed to McGyver my own bagpipes out of nothing but McDonalds straws and an enema bag I stole from the hospital. *tootle toot tootle toot tootle toot too* "You f***ing stink." Well sure, I've only been playing for like a day. "No, like you should have rinsed out the bag first." Haha, yeah, I feel sick.

Hit the jump for a shot of the components and a video of the bags in action.


Thanks to the beeps, who told me the best instruments are often the ones made at home with shit you just have lying around. Okay I don't know who told you that but that's not true. "You did." Then it 100% is.

    The high drive. Great tune by a great composer. impressive for a DIY pipe

  • It works surprisingly well.

  • Nick Martinez

    did anyone tell him its horribly out of tune?

  • Linsey Pollak did that before it was cool (as you can proof by his clothes):

  • n_a_a_s

    what the hell is with the background noise?

  • chris

    bagpipes produce a drone or constant tone in addition to the notes being played/fingered by the player
