For the past two years I have been visiting Douglas MacPherson at his workshop in Angus where we have been making incremental changes to the drone bores and chanter reamers. These tiny changes have improved what was already a good sound, into an exceptional one. Douglas uses all his thirty years of experience to individually hand craft his pipes to an incredibly high standard giving MacPherson Bagpipes a full, rich vibrant sound with a lively, bright, true chanter.

Thanks once again for the fast and friendly service. The pipes are simply exquisite and I think most other modern bagpipe makers could learn a lot about attention to detail simply by examining a set of your drones. As with all the previous sets you have supplied, these have been a dream to set up. They take just about any drone reed on the market and produce that gorgeous umbrella of sound that we all strive for. Rock steady and extremely air efficient drones combined with a bright and well balanced chanter... what more could anyone ask for?

With regard to tone, appearance and workmanship, the MacPherson Bagpipe is nothing short of first rate. A classic instrument that will stand the test of time.
