CJ Dixon ceased producing a few years ago.

Yes, I got this Dixon set second-hand from a Highland piper who had them for a number of years but never quite got the hang of bellows-blown pipes. And he had originally obtained it second-hand from somebody else. Over the several years and hundreds of miles that these pipes have seen, things have gone a little "out of whack." I'm finding it difficult to get the artificial drone reeds (made by CJ Dixon) to respond well to a normal level of bag pressure (what feels normal to me, anyway), through various adjustments. I have a set of composite reeds by EzeeDrone that work like a charm, but sound a little wimpy in these drones. I've managed to contact a former pipemaker in my area for some assistance, though.

The pipes are nothing out of the ordinary but I'm happy to finally start the journey :)
