Set of Pipes From Vintage Shop

Postby rootseire » Mon Jun 25, 2012 4:50 pm

Dear all,

About a year ago, I came across a set of N pipes in a shop here in North London. They had no maker written on them, and were missing a bellows, so I took them to the pipers club here on Grays Inn road to see what they had to say about them. Immediately they were able to get a sound out of the chanter, and the drones also started working too. I was delighted to hear them make such a sound (they seemed like they had been in their case and not played for a long time), and I have since been interested in having them restored to their original playing condition.

Would anyone out there know of a restorer/maker who would be willing to take a look and/or possibly repair this set of pipes in their original design?

Many thanks,
