Sac de gemecs
The sac de gemecs (Catalan pronunciation: [ˈsag də ʒəˈmeks]; literally "bag of moans", also known as buna [ˈbuna] in Andorra or coixinera [kuʃiˈneɾə], gaita [ˈgajtə] or botella [buˈteʎə]) is a type of bagpipe found in Catalonia (eastern Spain spilling over into southern France).
The instrument consists of a chanter, a mouthblown blowpipe, and three drones. The lowest drone (bordó llarg) plays a note two octaves below the tonic of the chanter. The middle drone (bordó mitjà) plays a fifth above the bass. The high drone (bordó petit) plays an octave below the chanter, thus one octave above the bass drone.
