Great Highland Bagpipes - Frankenpipes. The parts are made in the UK using African Blackwood and Ebony, by various makers or apprentice.Hence, the beading, combing and mounts do no match. However, the wood is heavy and dense. Some mounts are made of celluloid, some of artificial ivory and some of natural material (marine and terrestrial). Some of the stocks have cracks but have been sealed really well. This pipe set would serve its purpose and is playable if bag is fixed in and reeds are set. Just that its not aesthetically pleasing to the eye.
