Pibgorn Low - G - Isel (Coming soon!)

I wanted to make a low G chanter with a mellow tone so when I printed a large reed and designed this pibgorn I was very impressed with the tonality and sound when played. The vibrations produced can be felt deep into your throat and chest and the instrument is surprisingly simple to play.  Available in Ash only at present. 

Scale:  G, A, B, C, D, E, F#, G         

Price £225  ( plus £4.50 p&p)    

Opposite picture not accurate – Low G

Pibgorn Plastig (Plastic)

Design: I created and tested this design  from wood with a traditional cane reed.  This design was then converted to engineering plans and then to 3D CAD files where  the  plastic prototype was  produced.

Testing: This prototype was then tested  for stability, volume and robustness over a period of almost 3 years in live performances and solo playing by myself and other musicians.  The Pibgorn was then put into production. It is currently available in the key of D / Re.

Cynllun: Fe wnes i greu a phrofi’r cynllun mewn pren yn gyntaf, gyda chorsen traddodiadol o gansen. Fe wnaed cynlluniau peirianyddol o’r rhain, ac wedyn gwnaed ffeiliau CAD 3D er mwyn creu y prototeip o’r rhain.

Proses brofi: Cafodd y prototeip ei brofi o ran sefydlogrwydd, uchder sŵn, a chadernid dros gyfnod o dair blynedd mewn perfformiadau byw a chanu unigol gen i a cherddorion eraill. Ail-gynlluniwyd a symleiddiwyd y cyrn, gan gael gwared ar ymylon miniog er mwyn gwella’r golwg a diogelwch. Yna cychwynnwyd ar gynhyrchu’r pibgorn.
