Bagpipe from Russia: The volynka is a Slavic bagpipe. Its etymology comes from the region Volyn, Ukraine, where it was borrowed from Romania. The volynka is constructed around a goat skin air reservoir into which air is blown through a pipe with a valve to stop air escaping. A number of playing pipes [two to four] extend from the reservoir holding the air. The main playing pipe on which the melody is played has five to seven, sometimes eight finger holes. The other pipes produce a drone.
