Brand new in November 2018. Barely touched. I want to stick with NSP.
Beautiful set. Green bag which I decorated w black n silver Celtic ribbon.
Fully reeded. Each drone has an individual shut off.
No case.
Cost $2600, shipping extra.
This is his only set to date with drones which will play in D or E, via slide.
I’d like $2,300, shipping included within the contiguous U.S. buyers elsewhere, we’ll talk.

More information from the maker:

They have the density and fiber structure of African blackwood.
Plastic wouldn't hold steel, it contracts too much. They arent that basic either, the chanter is based on a Rowsome recommended by Tommy Martin and the pipers society in dublin. The bass drone has a three bore core that was common with Taylor sets in the late 19th century - Tommy Martin and Gay McKeon (O'Flynn Rowsome set) from the pipers society provided detailed measurements for the mandrel that the chanter is molded from.
The plans for the drones are also based on a set featured in The Seán Reid Society Journal. Volume 3. 2009 3.11
3.11 A deluxe O'Mealy set of pipes measured by Bill Haneman
Take a photo of the tri-bore end and you can see the covered corks, it's the same technique used in the 19th century realized in carbon fiber.
Also the stainless is 316, a nautical grade steel with a higher molybdenum content resulting with increased corrosion resistance.


PM okay.
