Eleven Pipers Piping

Tabor Pipe

Tabor Pipe

This Tabor pipe, found in on the Orlop Deck of the Mary Rose, would have been played alongside the Tabor Drum by the same musician; one hand playing the beat, the other fingering the pipe. This was made possible by the pipe only having three holes, for the middle and index fingers and the thumb, and had a range of two octaves, plus the four notes.


This pipe also features the makers name, E: LEGROS, although as of the time of writing we’ve not been able to find anything about this manufacturer.
