Which pedal for bagpipe-like sound?

Hi. Is there a pedal that can simulate the sound of bagpipes, or at least come close?

HAHAHAHA

I just laughed out loud. no offense, but this is probably the most random thread i've seen. it's just not something you would ever expect to see

....whew...

anyway...i have no clue. maybe lots of treble, an octave up, and playing a bunch of wrong notes?




sorry im not much help. the only bagpipes i've heard are those of the dropkick murphys.

I have no clue, but that's something I've always wondered about as well.

Do you mean like Big Country type stuff or you want drone note + melody line type stuff?

Wah, whammy(pitchshifter) and some eq.
You might also get that tone with the EHX micro synth or the pog/hog.

I think the most important thing would be the actual figure being played and your playing technique more than the effect (but this is pretty much always the case). Using drones and hammer ons with a really compressed tone should do the trick.

I'd play with open tunings, get those open drone notes.

Therefore: a boss TU-2 tuner.

That bag pipe sound is created mainly from the various drone notes in the pipes that are constantly being played over what the player is fingering on the chanter. There's at least one drone in every bagpipe piece you hear, so I guess if you can find a way to make a reed instrument sound on your guitar then just make a drone loop and play over it.

I think the drones are root and 5th if that helps.

All you would have to then do (if you could get the tone right - eq and ****ed wah etc.) is loop the drone notes and play over the top like pop_n_fresh said.

I meant more drone + melody stuff. I realize a lot of it has to do with technique. I'm just looking for something that would help achieving a simlar tonal quality. Seems like the microsynth or the POG would come close, and maybe a Big Muff type fuzz for extra sustain?

You need something with a sample and hold feature. Play the 5th, sample and hld it, then go to town with the melody line.

They terrorize me, for some bizarre reason they make me need to pee and there's ALWAYS like five on Princes Street and I always hear them just before I get on the bus to go home and spend 45 minutes thinking of deserts to stop from peeing on the old lady that's sitting next to me.

the sound in bagpipes is made by a reed vibrating air and in guitar it's a string vibrating air, but, surprisingly, they don't sound all that different. that's something to keep in mind. also, I think a lot of the character in bagpipe music comes from what notes you use. so learn some celtic scales, get some drones going, and you'll be high-steppin' in no time.
