I like the reg key shapes but the wood turning looks crude.

Looks like a Wilkinson McCarthy set. Made in UK late 70s or early 80s.

A set by Doug Wilkinson (rip) and Glen McCarthy and probably originally sold via Lark in the Morning. I gave them details of a Taylor set in their formative years and they translated the square chanter to the round hence the slimline almost highland chanter look.

Strong smell of Goat curry on this one and seller is "brians-vintage-collections" of Slough however the origin is considerably further to the east

I know - I am, to the best of my knowledge, the only Slough piper there is and I've never encountered them.

I was first exposed to Indian food in the U.K. in the 1970's, and i will be forever grateful.

The best Indian food I have ever had was in London: A place in Mayfair and another off of Piccadilly Circus. And the hottest! Wooo-wee hot!

I wondered too, I googled "steve and kim bagpipes" and what came up was numerous Pakistani-made pipes of various sorts, Highland pipes, smallpipes, uilleann pipes. Run away.

I thought the same, but looking at the keywork on the chanter, it is different to the usual Pakistani efforts.

Kirk Lynch keyed chanter - relisted, US only.

I'll be in London next month (my first time) and I'm very much looking forward to the world-famous food, especially Indian food.

We have it pretty good where I live- a town called Tustin- which has at last count eight Indian restaurants, a like number of Indian grocery shops, and where one sees people in traditional Indian clothes around town, and where we have a youth cricket academy
