Wanted - Bagpipes

Discussion in 'Classified Ads' started by Mother, Nov 30, 2006.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. 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?
  2. 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?


  3. 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 :)
