How many sets have the recent makers made?

Postby pipemakermike » Tue Jun 12, 2012 4:51 pm

It would be interesting to know how many sets each maker has made.
I have made 16 sets (counting 4 individual chanters as worth half a set)
We have a number of 3172 for David Burleigh's output

I would love to know how many sets have been made by:-
Colin Ross, Bill Hedworth, Bill Bohill, Ray Sloan, Richard Evans, Nigel Barlow, Philip Gruar, Dave McQuade, Robbie Greensit, Francis Wood, Julia and Barry Say

I am sure that there are other makers who's names I can't bring to mind (offers?)

Anybody with some numbers?

Hedworth is 360-ish, to the best of my memory (I have the figure somewhere,but not to hand)

Colin doesn't know. I asked him recently. But he thinks less sets than chanters. It must be in the several hundred, and he has meticulous workbooks so eventually it should be possible to calculate.

Others can answer for themselves: me the answer is embarrassingly few, and virtually none since I've been NPS sec.

I don't know right now. Our sets are stamped but not numbered, but we have a record of everything made so I'll find out. It is coming up to 11 years since we went full time plus 20-odd years building up from nothing to a part-time setup.

Looks like we have made around 150 NSP sets, 40-odd NSP chanters, around 210 SSP sets.

Cheers

How many sets have I made? Very few. The rarity aspect is impressive!
