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.

Don't know how to post photos - photo sent upon request.

PM okay.

Thanks for asking.
It’s by Carbony. Carbony Celtic Winds. Rob Gandara.
Corvalis, Oregon.
More information is available at carbony.com.

Sorry, I thought they were famous enough with their whistles and flutes and such.
They did only recently begin making UP half sets, though, (and of course prices are only going to increase) so good call.

I’m not sure a sound file from me would be great - I really don’t play.
Perhaps Carbony can provide one upon request.

That’s a bit misleading. Budget sets tend not to increase in value. You’re even willing to eat $300 to sell this set.

I got the impression that the sense intended was "makers will increase their prices as time goes on", rather than "used sets appreciate in value".

Wow. Not misleading at all. Materials and other costs only increase. I’m sure Rob will do so before long.
I really wouldn’t call this a budget set, either. I’ve seen several. This is higher quality, fwiw.

Maybe, but we're not talking production costs, we're talking prices. If the instrument won't sell at $2600, the price will fall. You demonstrated this yourself by dropping your asking price to $2300.

Seriously now, plastic and extruded stainless steel are not high quality products.

Well, in fairness, the pictures you put up don't exactly make your point for you...

Sound files:

Rob immediately sent me these upon request. Great guy to work with:

Not sure what is wrong with my photo, sorry.
There are more photos at Carbony.com if you are interested.

I would say that these are a Basic set, but I'd never call them "Budget" - I've owned four budget sets and they were much lower quality compared to this.
And I wouldn't call Carbon Fiber "plastic" - though an engineer might, that term is misleading when it comes to CF - a much stronger and more durable material than the average plastic.
But thanks for all the chatter - great publicity!
