Now more seriously, I have been learning gaita piping for 5 years, and together with smallpipes I have built a small collection of 5 bagpipes.
A Lauriebeck D Lignum vitae smallpipe set, Dunfion A/D smallpipes, Seivane C ronqueta/chillon blackwood gaita, Corral C blackwood gaita, & Argayl medieval D bagpipes.

Here's the early Lawries I recently acquired. They closely resemble Lawries made in the pre-John MacColl era, 1881 - 1908.

They had sat unplayed for many years. I spent several hours cleaning and oiling the ebony, cleaning old grime off the ivory, and most labourious of all cleaning and polishing the metalwork, finally getting down to the bare metal.

The best part is how well they play! That great vintage sound, and easy to strike in, and very stable.

Lovely set PCP, lucky find! stunning....


These are my Hendersons, both Cocus and Ivory /Nickle silver. The full size set has a Cocus, Hendeson Chanter playing between A4409 and A450, happy at the mo at A445. The 7/8th set is With a MacHarg A440 7/8th chanter .
The full size set is probably 1920's and the 7/8th set was retrofitted with Tuning slides in 1912 , due to the wear under one slide Im guessing it was a good 20 yrs older than that but I could be mistaken.

Another old set just aquired!

On Ebay! $740. From a local seller so I could pick them up and not worry about shipping ivory over borders.

Appear to be by David Glen, Edinburgh, c1880. Cocus wood and ivory. The bass midsection pin has an old crude repair using brass tubing. That section has been sent off to be professionally repaired with a wood pin.

One tenor top is an old Lawrie ebony replacement but the mounts match the Glen mounts. The blowpipe is likewise an old Lawrie ebony and ivory one.

The set came with a c1930 Henderson chanter with a casein sole which I've sold.

That Lawrie set came with an old 1960s Hardie chanter which evidently had had the original German Silver thistle engraved Lawrie sole fitted to it.

It's a nice old Hardie chanter and I've played it at Church gigs where I'm playing along with the pipe organ.

But for now that chanter is stored away and I'm using a McCallum poly 466 for gigs and a high-pitch big-hole McCallum poly for the band.

Those matching Henderson sets are awsome. I love those integral wood projecting mounts that Henderson made, so artistic and lovely. Most modern pipes, if they have wood mounts, have hideous bulky plain "button" mounts.

In 2007 I visited Kintail in Glasgow and they had a Henderson set like that in the shop, being refurbished. My guess is that it was one of Steve McVeigh's sets ("bugpiper" on Ebay, who always has a number of 1950s Hendersons which have been heavily refurbished there).

"intersting to have both chanter stop key AND drone switch!" - use both at the same time for silent mode, essential for "air piping".

Since we are on the topic, here is my favourite set. By myself, using a Galician Gaita reed for the chantr, my own for the drones. The fingering is thoroughy chromatic, a bit different from the Gaita.

Pitched in somewhere between B and Bb. Since I invariably play it by myself, that doesn't matter. This is my first take on the type. As I play nearly exclusively Mediaeval music, the carving of the headstock (displayed) is done accordingly. The rear view is the one to remind me of what my listeners think of it, just so I don't get carried away...
Made in Rata, a New Zealand extremly hard-wood, with box mounts.
