682 Steinbach Nutcracker Scotch Bagpiper
The bagpiper is an essential part of a
true Scotsman. You canít mistake the sound of this wind instrument.
The shawm pipes hang on a leather windbag which is blown up through a
mouth pipe. Only one pipe has finger holes for the melancholy tune. The
other 2 or 3 Pipes each give only a tuning or droning tone. Colourful
ribbons and all kinds of decoration make a traditional dress out of the
bagpipe which is an essential part of the kilt. This national menís
dress is a costume for festivals, sport and military events made of
tartan. It is a colourful brightly checked material with special
patterns which the still very distinctive clans there have reserved for
themselves. Military parades with Scottish pipers are a great spectacle
and very popular in Germany.
According to countless Scottish
jokes the Scots are said to count the pennies rather carefully! But they
have always bought our nutcracker. He is after all a magnificent
specimen ó and if we didnít need the money we wouldnít sell him at
