The gaita sanabresa is a type of bagpipe native to Sanabria, a comarca of the province of Zamora in northwestern Spain.

The gaita sanabresa features a single drone. The scale of this chanter is distinct from others in Spain, more resembling the gaita transmontana in the neighboring regions of Portugal, as well as the gaita alistana of Aliste. In playing, the fingering is generally open, though some players use semi-closed touches.

The instrument was in decline in the 20th century and nearly extinct by the 1980s, but subsequent revivals, aided in part by the Escuela de Folclore de Puebla de Sanabria has lead to a new local popularity for the instrument.
