Making the Pipes

Ian D Murray making bagpiesMy bagpipes are produced from the finest African Blackwood specially imported from Tanzania, combined with extension mounts and ferrules made from various materials at the discretion of my clients. These include wood, imitation ivory, imitation horn, nickel, brass, sterling silver, and there are a few occasions where real ivory can be used (under licence) when available.

Using all of these fine materials, and traditional skills learned in Scotland I produce an instrument with particular attention to detail, dedication to quality and guarantee a bagpipe of unique tone and appearance.
