Wanted - Bagpipes


I am after a decent set of pipes and I believe the issue sets are good.
Any advice from pipers on here about buying pipes, makes of pipes and where to get them would be greatly appreciated.
Is there a few surplus hanging aroung from the Scottish Regiments amalgamation?


Mother I have tried sourcing another set for myself (for my son) with no joy, good luck.

May I suggest to stay away from the 'Pakastani' pipes, those made in Pakistan funnily enough, they are nowhere near the quality of those made in the UK/Europe, also only go for African Blackwood, avoid, cocus wood, shesham wood, rose wood etc... All Pish!

Where are you posted/living as there may be a band local to you who may help?

I might have an old bag you can have (wind is self generating) if you like - you can stick your own pipes in her - normally leads to a volmue increase of sorts :) But still the same old bag and screech!

Good luck in your quest :)

I have resurrected this thread as I have an elderly and recently widowed friend who has just found a set of bagpipes, a tutor book and a 'matching' kilt. She wonders if there is anyone who wants the package before she puts it up for sale and/or on Ebay.

If anyone is interested please pm me and I'll get more details and/or photos from her.
