Default Re: Just how low can you go?

It really depends what you consider to be a limit. You could build a pipe chanter that played in D quite easily, I think, and it would be playable, but you obviously couldn't tune drones to it, and it would need a reed of its own. And you could keep going, and start to solve new problems, with keys, folded drones, etc...

Reeded wind instruments in general can get down to very low notes, lower than a piano.
