So I kinda took a chance and bought them as my first set. Did I make a huge mistake? I want to learn but can't afford much so I figured I'd take the risk.

Well, the only "caveat" is really the tongue-in-cheek "ultimate social distancing tool" quip. The seller says that the set is good enough for trying out piping, so you take that for what it's worth. So is it a huge mistake? A huge mistake would be buying Pakistani-made pipes.

Vignoles isn't among what are popularly considered "top makers", but I haven't heard much against him, either. He's still in business, if that tells you anything.

I have a full set by Vignoles minus the chanter, the drones are very good with a strong solid sound, the regulators are in almost perfect tune with practically no rushing, when I got them nothing was working right, so you may need to tune your chanter, but going by my set you should end up with a good instrument.

I read it as "you may need a new reed - don't assume it will play out of the box" but nothing more than that. Just how the guy said it was funny.

Enjoy! I almost snatched up that Vignoles practice set myself, mainly to have another chanter. But decided to wait for one with more keys.

I'll be following the discussion, it will be interesting to hear as experts identify the various makers and keys.

Bummer the bass reg reed is out and loose- what are the chances it survives intact?

I see also a half set and bellows by Seth Gallagher.

Black chanter bellows and bag/cover with mainstock cup plus case - Pakistani.

Last looks like Hunter half set and chanter beside the Pakistani chanter and bag
The white leather bellows also looks like Hunter.

Just so I understand:

the full set in picture 2 including a light brown chanter is a rogge

the chrome-looking drones with an l and m bag in picture 7 are Pakistani

the drones and chanter in the centre of picture 5 are hunter

have i got that right?

Oh I love pots of ebay confusion like this.

We have pipes:
1) Full set + chanter (left side of image) [Rogge]
2) Black and silver half set (tied to the L&M bag, goes with the chanter in the top of the image) [Pakistani?]
3) Black and brass half set (top of the image) [Hunter, Gallagher?]

For bellows:
1) White leather
2) Black leather brass tacked
3) Black leather silver tacked (in the case)
4) Black leather no tack

Bags:
1) L&M
2) Far right with fringe
3) Far left (no cover)
4) Far left (cover)

So far guesses range from Pakistani to Rogge!

I took a stab at it. I'm just uncertain if #3 + #14 are actually Hunter.

1: Seth Gallagher Bellows
2: Andreas Rogge bag + stocks
3: Peter Hunter bellows (my guess)
4: The bag /stocks that go with #14
5: A shooting block
6: Connector hose for Rogge bellows (#10)
7: Connector hose for Gallagher bellows (#1) + either a pakistani or Rogge reed (I can't tell)
8: Andreas Rogge full set
9: Andreas Rogge chanter + no keys but mounts do not match the set #8 (maybe a flat chanter? Hard to tell)
10: Andreas Rogge bellows
11: Andreas Rogge bass reed cover (Not sure what's on there right now)
12: Pakistani bellows
13: Pakistani chanter + windcap
14: Peter Hunter half set (A guess)
15: Pakistani bag
16: Seth Gallagher halfset (missing chanter)

Also the three cases in the back. The one on the right is definitely Seth Gallagher. I'd assume another one is Rogge. Not sure what the third is.
