Hi ferris54

Nice looking set - hope they sound as nice as Danny's set (or even better).

I'd like to see some details of the reg keys - how did he connect them to the wood - looks like pins?

Despite the the color and a few little changes I´d say it´s completely influenced by Cillian O Briain . The chanter scalloped holes is the same as my O Briain chanter , and also like Micky Dunne who makes O´Briain style pipes, as do many other makers eg ... Andy Faden ,,, Jim Wenham . In that case I would say the sound great and play well.

The pipes arrived today and they are better in the flesh than the photo`s. Everything was perfectly in tune and i`ve been playing on them for a couple of hours. I love the reg keys as you can slide up and down the keys smoothly.
I`m not a good enough player to post a clip of how they sound but Gordon recorded some clips in Ennis a couple of weeks ago with blackie o`connoll playing them

From what I understand, Galloway and O'Brien have standardised and outsourced their keywork to a 3rd party. If quality standards are maintained, I think it should lead to quicker pipe production.
