These are the two sets I play the most and gig with. The first is a 'D' Border Pipe in laburnam by Dominic Allan and the second a 'G' Border Pipe in ebony by Jon Swayne.

Hi

Just showing off my new for me pipes.

This set is a 2008 Cocobollo MacLellan, antique design (but modern bores), with Intertwined Heron's engraved silver ferrules, ring caps and mouthpiece tube. Mounts are satin wood which is very nice. Cocobollo is dark red in colour and has a beautiful grain, quite stunning in the sun. Using either Maggerity reeds, or John Elliot reeds. I like both. Drones are powered by original Wygent Synth reeds.

They sound as good as they look.. Awesome.

Here are my beautiful Highland pipes, made by Michael MacHarg. They are made out of blackwood, moose antler, and nickel engraved by Roddy MacLellan and are based off of a Lawrie design. I play them with a Bb MacHarg chanter, a sheepskin bag, and Kinnairds in the drones. I much prefer the smooth look over the drones being beaded.

Here is a (dark) video of me playing the pipes, sorry for the mistake or two!

And here are my four drone smallpipes made by EJ Jones. They are made out of silver, moose antler, and blackwood. I have an A and a D chanter for them, and the drones are A tenor and bass, and D alto and baritone.

Here's a video of me playing them, again sorry as it's not great quality:

Lovely SSPs there Peter.

One time at the Worlds I visited Ian Kinnear's booth and I heard various top-level pipers play two A SSPs he had there, an ABW and a polypenco set.

I actually preferred the sound of the polypenco set! So big and bold a tone for an SSP, and I reckon it would be ideal for sessions where SSPs so often can't be heard well.

If I had the money I'd get one of those.

Those are lovely! I really like the Glen style 'cut bead' mounts. What are the bores based on?

I just did a better photo shoot of my old Lawries yesterday, in mind that perhaps they might be included on Ringo Bowen's site.

Here are a couple of the shots. Note that the bass is larger everywhere than the tenors: larger ferrules, slides, etc. Modern makers use the same ferrules everywhere, the bass and tenors being identical in look, just being different lengths. Having the tenors smaller than the bass on the outside isn't merely elegant, it's a 'form follows function' thing. Lawrie obviously had an ideal wall thickness they liked, and kept it more or less throughout, so the tenors, having smaller bores than the bass, would therefore be smaller on the outside too.
