Is this of interest?


I'm pretty confident that there is a Middle East made set. The wood looks like it has been stained darker than they usually look to pass off as ebony, but the usual hallmarks are there. In that bag of reeds, you can see some plastic chanter reeds as well- which to me (along with the other details) is a giveaway.

Hi there, I've been watching some of these listings for some time.
I notice that the exact same Kwisthout set keeps getting relisted again and again, even though people have placed bids on it when it was listed previously. So apparently the seller can opt not to accept a final bid.


A seller can list an item with a "Reserve" price, and if that is not met, he's not obligated to accept lower bids. I don't know if that's what is happening here, but it's one possibility.

The tell-tale signs are definitely there.
The seller describes it as being purchased from Spain.
I believe they are re-selling this set (or something similar), which is sold by somebody in Barcelona and appears to be one of the assembly-line UP copies from Pakistan:

The chanter from last week, unknown maker, in D with C natural key, has been re-listed due to non-paying bidder (the final bid had been $620). It looks like US only:
