THE EXACT YEAR OF MANUFACTURE IS NOT KNOWN BUT ITS BETWEEN 1930 - 1940s Era FROM Glasgow. They were won by well know Scottish piping figure, Pipe Major who played them with success in numerous solo and grade 1 pipe band competitions with the lothian and borders police pipe band. They have also been played at many prominent engagements including royal functions, Edinburgh tattoo, Toronto intercontinental tattoo etc. We acquired the bagpipe from him, was so impressed with the appearance and tonal qualities of the pipes that he approached us in 2015 about creating a reproduction. Like the original, the tone is rich and subtle.

From 1880 until 1973, the Henderson shop on Renfrew street in Glasgow was a hub for top pipers.
