I think that to show how they look is a good idea
Gaita Riojana

Gaita Sanabresa

Gaita Cabuérniga (a new kind of gaita developed by David López, you can see several Galician gaitas made by him and one Cabuérniga)

In the last photo of him playing the yellow (boxwood?) gaita, am I right in thinking that the chanter might have a parallel bore? The outside profile of the chanter certainly looks parallel.

It's a massive chanter if nothing else.

You can listen the sound of this gaita in the maker's MySpace http://www.myspace.com/davidcabuernigo
(The first tune called Cabuérniga and the last one called Trueno )
David lives in Cantabria, in a village called Sopeña, and makes fine Galician gaitas and wooden Irish whistles. His Cabuérniga gaita sounds like a SSP, I think the bore of the chanter is cilindrical.
