CLASSIFICATION

According to Alfonso García-Oliva Mascarós, in his catalogue of bagpipes in Bagpipe Museum at Gijon, Aragonese Bagpipe belongs to West european bagpipes (group D) and in particular to “franc-occitan” family.
This family is basically characterized by the presence of only one front seat, a chanter (clarín) with narrow conical section close to a tenor drone (bordoneta or tenoreta), placed in parallel.

In spite of its wide section, aragonese bagpipe belongs to this family, as well as Boha of Las Landas (France), with cylindrical section. Others from this family are Musettes of 23 and 16 inches from the center of France (Berry, Bourbonnais, Nivernais, Morvan), the Chabretta of Limousin (France), the Cabrette of Auvernia (France).

"First cousins" of Aragonese Bagpipe are the ones from Mediterranean Family from the same group D. Between them we can emphasize the Zampogna (Italy), the Xeremia (Majorca) and the Sac de Gemecs (Catalonia).
