Bagpipe Active Preamp Mixer

The N-audio bagpipe preamp is a two-channel active summing mixer designed specifically for Bulgarian bagpipe players. With separate volume controls for two microphones positioned on the drone and chanter, this preamp amplifies the signal from each microphone and mixes them using separate volume controls. The result is a powerful and authentic sound that captures the unique tone of this traditional Bulgarian musical instrument.


  • Two 3.5mm input jacks for connecting microphones from the drone and chanter.
  • An active summing amplifier with two independent volume controls.
  • A low-impedance line level output with a standard 1/4″ guitar jack.
  • Battery-powered with three AA batteries. When the output jack is removed, the batteries are not used to save their life.
  • Metal belt clip on the back to hang the Bagpipe preamp on your belt.

The bagpipe preamp’s line level output is well-suited for both playing and recording with mixer desks, sound cards, or combined with various external effects. This versatile tool is a great choice for any bagpipe player, offering an essential way to capture their instrument’s full range of sounds. Also, its ultra-low current draw electronics ensure a longer battery life.
