Maker of affordable plastic French and German bagpipes?

Post by MatthewVanitas »

I'm setting up a listing of makers of non-GHB bagpipes, and I'm 98% sure I once ran across the website of a guy, probably French (maybe German), who made plastic bagpipes in the format of some Continental European pipes, and had pretty good prices like US$500 for some basic plastic pipes. Like I think he offered a Cornemuse du Centre and a Hummelchen in plastic for around that price. I'm not confusing him with Seth Hamon of Texas who makes cast-polymer Swedish pipes, this guy definitely made non-Swedish, non-SSP pipes in black plastic at moderate price.

Does anyone recall what pipemaker that would be?

Hi .I think you are writing about my french cq lowland pipes I am making now for about 25 years.They are made from ABS and have the 1,5 octave ,half closed fingering you find on the modern continental pipes .
I made this pipes in ABS for beginners and as studentpipes ,low budget, to have children an opportunity to start. They are almost unbreakable ,easy to clean and they sound is as a hardwood chanter. I make the drones in wood to avoid condensation in cold air (inside the drones). ( excuse for my english :-)

Oh, yeah: also a mod here, not a spammer. A matter of opinion, perhaps.

Pipemaker are those links?

If they are, they don't work for me.

I would love to see your ABS bagpipes.

They're local paths of some kind (macOS?), not web links.

Tell us something.: I'm a fiddler and, latterly, a fluter. I love the flute. I wish I'd always played it. I love the whistle as well. I'm blessed in having really lovely instruments for all of my musical interests.

The presence of "DCIM" says to me that those pictures are either on a phone or a digital camera. To be able to see them, they need to be hosted somewhere and the shared links posted here between appropriate IMG tags.

See my previous reply and Ben's. You need to upload them to the web somewhere and use the forum's Img tags.

Sorry, no...
'404. That’s an error.

'The requested URL was not found on this server. That’s all we know.'

(Your link should take us to your album, but perhaps you've not set it to be publicly viewable or something.)

You need to put publicly viewable photos in tags like this:

Code: Select all

[img]Photo address here[/img]
Actual example:
