Jon Swayne Pipes in Low C

Post by Geraint »

I have a set of Jon Swayne's border pipes in Low C. They're bellows blown (which I've never got to grips with - old rugby injury to my shoulder) Still, they have a wonderful tone. They're fantastic pipes, in good condition.

In plumwood with black imitation horn mounts. They have a chanter switch and a drone switch. See below for details.

I've been considering having them converted to mouth-blown, but haven't got around to that yet. I don't play them, and they should be being played.

New, they'd be £2,340 with at least a year's wait according to the website. I waited longer than a year for my D pipes from Jon Swayne! I could probably find you an old set of bellows if you wish to get started on them.

If you're interested and would like to make a serious offer, please get in touch. I might accept a set of one- or two-drone Swayne G's in partial payment. Or a C Melody Sax :-)
