For Sale: A lovely (by now vintage I suppose, but as new) Tom White Uilleann Practice Set, with interesting provenance.

Fully airtight original bellows and a new sheepskin bag tied in by Masaki Kato, as well as new reed wonderfully-sounding reed made for the chanter.
A wonderful and sweet-sounding chanter and just a great feel overall. (Can also alternatively provide a Garvie bellows if you trust a newer bellows more.)

For those who - like me - love the extra bit of trivia about a set: It was gifted to a famous German surrealist (or more so fantastic realism) painter, who also worked it and his GHB set into various paintings; and after his death left this set to me.

As I feel it would be his wish that it finally gets played properly, this is up for sale as border pipes need financing - but I am in no particular rush to get rid of it. 950€/850GBP ono.
Can provide detailed pictures on request and can also post throughout Europe and the Americas.

You can send me a message here or an email at lysardeal (at) googlemail.com

Now put a picture in and will put more in soon.

Any examples? Just for curiosity's sake.

Not sure whether my last attempt to post this worked, so here again - an example that includes the GHB chanter. Unfortunately, I don´t have any of the other ones handy as I never scanned the pictures I have of them!

All the best,
Lenni

Great, thanks. :thumbsup:

Had a good look around at the museum on the back of that. That was interesting.
