The veuze is a Breton bagpipe found traditionally in southeastern Brittany and in the northern part of the Vendée, particularly around Nantes, the Guérande peninsula, and Basse-Vilaine. The veuze has been mentioned in writings dating to the 16th century, and is thought to be the oldest of the Breton bagpipes.


The veuze consists of a bag (poche), blowpipe (sutell), a double-reeded chanter (levriad), and a single-reeded drone or drones (bourdon). The levriad is generally pitched in C or D, but can also be found in A, B flat, and G.
