My sutky is a mouthblown three-voice bagpipe, with a commonplace chanter with two bores. The right one – hucik – has one fingerhole (kontra). It plays lower fourth when covered (with right hand's ring finger), and the tonic when open.. Abeceda, the melody pipe on the left side has 5 fingerholes in front and a thumbhole on the rear. It plays the tonic when all the holes are covered. There is a special tuning hole at the side of the chanter, for setting this bottom note in tune. The Hucik has no resonator, only a simple wooden tube with a suggestion of a bell at the end. The chanter is placed in a simple turned stock, still with a cetain goatlike character to it.
The drone – huk – sounds an octave downwards from the chanter's keynote. It has no bell as well.
The sound is interesting, almost exotic.
Tuning:Pitch e to a, or any.
