Today I visited the Helsinki museum, where 6 bagpipes are stored.

It was a preliminary visit where I inspected and photographed all the instruments.

I more detailed visit must follow where I will manipulate, and precisely measure the outside and inside of the objects, in order to draft technical documents and produce replicas for my doctoral research – Forgotten bagpipes –  The Redesign of the Säkkipilli in Finland.

They were all very interesting, although incomplete, instruments, somewhat similar to the ones encountered in Estonia.
