For Sale

Half Set in C

A half set pitched in C made circa 2008 in Ebony, brass and alt.ivory.  The aesthetic of the bore design is one that I still follow today.  The pipes have been cleaned, re-hemped, reeded and had a new bag fitted.  They are available to ship/collect.  I am acting as an intermediary in the sale and payments are to be made directly to the customer via BACS or cheque.  Please contact for further information.

B 1/2 Set (Coming in October 2017)

(Sold) Available for collection or shipping October 2017:  A half set pitched in B-natural: fashioned from boxwood, brass metal ware with hand-rolled metal sliders, fully mounted in Elforyn alternative ivory and with a fully-keyed (all hand forged) chanter.  This is a truly exquisite instrument with a tone and aesthetic seldom equalled in modern union pipes. 

This is an indication of what the piper may expect: 

The Clumsy Lover
