There's a lot of electronic bagpipe development going on right now, ranging from DIY projects like Frankenpipe, to commercial products vPipes and ePipe. These electronic bagpipes look and sound great, but the commercial products range from a few $100 to $5000, and the non-commercial published projects typically lack enough information for a DIY to reproduce the design.
The eChanter aims to bridge the gap between the commercial products and the DIY projects, while meeting fourbasic goals:
1. "Open Design" that can be made by anyone with basic electronics skills
2. Costs less than $100US in materials
3. Use minimal number of components
4. Use the Arduino platform for software control

Far from being a simple practice chanter, Master Gaita ® is a simple but powerful tool that lets to use the bagpipe fingering to get into and control the MIDI universe, and also to open new ways faced to the learning of bagpipe technique and music. When connected to a computer with its own program, you can, not only to play with any instrument's sound but also perform with traditional bagpipes' sound. This is done by using recorded and prepared samples to get a quite near reality sound. The control of the sound volume lets the performance at any time during the day without worring about posible disturbs that the bagpipe loud sound might produce.

I got my first bagpipes made by this guy, some 18 years ago. They're great and so is he.
BTW make sure you check both the low-graphics and the high-graphics version. They are completely different websites.
