What is a Bombard (Bombarde)?

The bombarde is a wind instrument with a double reed, belonging to the oboe or shawm family. Typically crafted from wood and measuring between 10 to 20 inches (25 to 50 cm), it boasts six finger holes, one or two keyed holes along its front, a cane reed, and a broad metal bell. Held almost perpendicular to the body, the player positions the first three fingers of each hand over corresponding holes. The right little finger operates a key at the instrument’s base or covers the seventh hole if no key is present. Creating its characteristically loud and powerful sound involves blowing into the cane reed placed between the lips.

Capable of spanning two octaves, the bombarde achieves its upper octave by increasing the air pressure forced through the instrument. The name “bombarde” traces its origins to a 14th-century artillery piece. During the 16th century, shawms, ranging from sopranino to double bass, were crafted. While higher-pitched versions retained the name shawm, lower-pitched ones became known as bombardes. In Brittany, where the bombarde is prevalent, it traditionally partners with the biniou, a type of bagpipe, forming a duet played at weddings or fairs by professional musicians known as sonerion in Breton or sonneurs de couple in French. This ensemble, documented in the 18th century, historically included a drum until the mid-20th century.
