Doedelzak or pijpzak is the generic term for the bagpipes in the Netherlands.

The specific term also refers to a type of two-droned Flemish bagpipe, as portrayed in the artwork of Pieter Bruegel the Elder. The two drone pipes, which have single reeds and are typically a fifth apart, are in the same stock and face directly up or slightly forward. The chanter has a double reed.


The doedelzak is very similar in design to the cornemuse du centre of Central nl:Doedelzak
