I recall seing a set verry similer to this at blowout, it's a beautiful design.

That was this set!
The green man marquetry took almost as long to make as the rest of the pipes!

These are my pastoral pipes by Geert Lejeune of Brugge. They are in the key of D and are made of blackwood, horn, and silverplated mountings. They have a robust sound, just a touch louder than uillean pipes but not as loud as highland pipes. The 3 drones are in D (bass, alto, & treble). They’re fun to play, and with their range, I can play most of the Irish tunes I like to play.

My playing isn’t yet up to prime time but, here is link to another set made by Geert. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pZMFuUycwfs

I seem not to understand how to post the images to have them show up here.

When I click on those links, Tjones, all I get is a black screen. Is there a 'share' button on the image site you're using?

Hi,
I am brand new to this forum and am certainly glad that I have "stumbled" upon the Chiff&Fipple!
I am relatively new at piping, having my first set of Shepherd Small Pipes abot 14 months and my wonderful Simon Hope SSP in "D" for about 7 months.
I am happy to be able to share some photos of my Hope Pipes here (I hope the attaching works).
I am also on the wait list for Simon's Border Pies as well!

I just sold my lovely c1905 Lawries (ebony, ivory, and engraved German Silver) due to both ebony and ivory being banned from international travel, and in addition ivory being illegal to possess within the USA.

I ordered a custom/bespoke set from Rick Pettigrew at Dunbar Bagpipes, St Catherines, Ontario which due to the low Canadian dollar at the time of my order cost only around $1500 US.

Dunbar has started using Cocobolo (in addition to ABW which they've always done) so I got that, with hand-engraved David Davidse mounts.

The wood all matches in person- it's strange how in photos the wood appears to be different colours. Indoors the pipes are a very dark brown, nearly black. In the sun they look more like they do in the top photo, below.

These pipes play great.
