I have reluctantly decided that it is time to part with my Geoff Wooff full set in D. This set was made in 1981, and I am the second owner. A few pictures of the set can be seen here.
The set is made of ebony, brass and ivory. It has a wide bore chanter with 3 keys (high C, F nat, G sharp), different than the narrow bore D chanters Geoff makes now. I am selling the set without bellows, but with a custom hard case, made by Geoff for this set.
I had the pipes fully re-reeded a couple of years ago by Allan Moller (drones/regs) and Alan Burton (chanter). The set looks, sounds and plays wonderfully. It never fails to get a lot of attention, and more than one piper has commented that it has some of the sweetest drones they have ever heard.
My primary reason for selling is to fund the restoration of a 19th century C sharp set I acquired a couple of years ago. Also, since I got the Wooff set I have also bought an old Taylor-style set from the 1920s/30s which tends to be the D set I play most now. It seems silly to have a lovely set like this sitting around under-played, when it could be moved to a new home.
Please PM me with questions, for more information or to discuss a price. Serious inquiries only please. I am based in the London, and am happy to arrange to meet up with UK pipers interested.
