Bagpipe. A musical instrument, consisting of a leathern bag, and pipes for admitting and ejecting the air. It is an instrument of great force, not pleasing to those who are unused to it, but much esteemed by the Scots and Irish. The bass part never varies its tone, and, therefore, is called the drone, and the compass of the treble part, or chanter, is very limited.
