Wow. It looks like he may have to squeeze the bag by pulling inward on the pipes. Maybe....

And which of the pipes is the chanter? Almost any of them would be so long that I wonder how you'd finger notes on it.

I don't think it's a one-of-a-kind set of pipes because there's another one to the left side of the photo.

It is a zampogna gigante, made and played by Marco Tomassi.
The picture has been on C&F a while ago: http://forums.chiffandfipple.com/viewto ... 19&t=46929
All zampogne have two chanters, one for each hand.

Thanks, Michael, that C&F thread explains a lot!
