Yeah theyre 6 or 8 palmi Zamps;

If Siclilan, then it'll play in a minor mode; if continental (Abruzzo, Calabria, etc) then It'll play major like the Molise type.

There's only 2 or 3 who'll make the large ones anymore:

Pino Salamone is one:

The Forastireo (sic) bros are too old (Ted Anderson got the last 6 palmi from Antonio, I believe) Seeler's "Universe of pipes" has pictures...

There used to be a slew of pics on this site; but its gone now;

Here's another good pic:

As far as I know there's only a couple playing the Siclilian Gran Zamp, Ive only ever seen/heard the same 2 guys playin it; (mebbe I'm wrong?dunno...)

+ lemme plug the Circolo della Zampogna again:
http://www.zampogna.org/ yeah I'm still on the front page, (guess I look the part?)
8)

LOC audio dept has a downloadable Mp3 of a 6 palmi +ciaramella playing 'Tu Scende', that'll come up in a google if you 'd like to hear what were lookin at...

:D

u mean ,why am I doing this , or where did I get one? :?:

Friend of mine worked GHB in South Philly. When he retired to Nevada couple of years ago he said:
"Chollie, theyre all these Italians gonna call you to come play for em on Christmas Eve. Im givin em yer #."
So Im like, "yeah right:"
Lo+ Behold, midnite that Christmas eve I find myself as part of a surprise live nativity ( in full #1 dress , playing 'Hark the Herald Angels Sing' on GHB)amongst what were surely the only sheep + goats in the zipcode.
Next year I learned 'Tu Scende Della Stella' for them, + the folowing year they wanted the real thing. I sent for a 25' Molisana+ The rest, as they say.... :wink:
Tough finding a Ciaramelllist. Fortunately an Oboist friend of mine went for it.
CAnt figure out this figurine, tho:
