Speaking of 3D-printed chanters, here's a Kenneth McNichol chanter (unpainted) with C-nat key, comes with one reed:

Our old friend is back. I've already reported it to Ebay, it would be nice if others reported it as well.

(Full set in B for five dollars, with seller's contact information in one of the photos thus violating Ebay policies.)

Thanks!

Hi Madpiper13
The sets in question have been taken down.

The Gallagher half set is OK.

Every year at around this time scammers list 2 sets for sale on eBay - at least 3 times this year. A Crowley set and a Kennedy set, if I see them I complain to eBay and they get taken down - pancelticpiper beat me to it this time.

We notify Ebay because it's a known scam to us, and we don't want somebody who doesn't know about it to be scammed by the guy.

They're such clear violations of Ebay policies, posting photos with his contact information, that it's a cut-and-dry decision for Ebay to pull them down.

One of these days that guy will learn to be more subtle.

Don't you just love web translations
This musical instrument is an Irish Bagpipe which plays in D with a bellows.

- The bellows is "Bl.Howard" manufacturing.
- This Irish Bagpipe is anchored and verified by D. Heuline (Luthier).
- No belt.
- The pocket is waterproof and the bellows in good condition.

Strictly speaking, the 3D printed chanter comes with a Howard reed, but the listing does not say who made the chanter.
The Youtube demo is from the channel of Copernicus Bagpipes, a maker in Poland that doesn't list this type of chanter on their own site.
