The mizwad (mezoued, mizwid) (Arabic: مِزْود; plural مَزاود mazāwid, literally "sack") is a type of bagpipe played in Tunisia. The instrument consists of a skin bag with a joined double-chanter, terminating in two cow horns, similar to a hornpipe.

The ethnomusicologist Anthony Baines stated that the term "zukra" is also used for this instrument, though bagpipe enthusiast Oliver Seeler states that this connection is incorrect.[1]
