D 1/2 Set

(Sold)  D Half Set

A half set pitched in concert pitch D made from brass, African Blackwood and alternative ivory.

This is the first set of 2018 made for a UK customer who unfortunately was unable to follow through with his order.  The set has been fully trimmed in alternative ivory which has a lattice very close to the grain structure of ivory.  The chanter has been fitted with C and F natural keys.  ABW is a supreme exotic timber which turns well and gives an excellent finish as evidenced in the pictures.  It comes with bag and bellows and is available immediately.

Photos and video/ audio demonstration available here.

I can be contacted on 085 129 6847 for Irish customers and 00353 85 129 6847 for UK and international customers.
