Buy yourself a Practice Chanter. This is essentially the blowstick and the chanter with a small chamber between them where the reed sits. This will allow you to learn how to actually play the instrument before you need to learn breathing and managing pressure on the bag. Also, while bagpipes run in the several-hundred-to-several-thousand dollar range, a practice chanter will only set you back about $30-$40. A lot cheaper if you find out you don't much like the pipes.

What else do I need?
