Bombardes Bombarde, ebony body and bell in Bb

The bombarde, or bombard (in Breton) is a folk musical instrument from Brittany and Cornwall that is a cross between an oboe and a conical-bored pipe chanter (the part of the bagpipe upon which the player creates the melody). The bombarde is blown by the mouth; the reed is held between the lips. Pitched in B flat, it plays a diatonic scale over two octaves.
