Brand: Boderiou BagpipesSKU: XB-U12


Boderiou Uilleann Half Set with Bellows

Boderiou Uilleann pipes have a truly special, small-batch character and gorgeous sound. These pipes are lovely Blackwood instruments, with brass accents and artistic touches of engraving. A stop key on the chanter and a clean on/off drone switch give the player choice and versatility. A musician, innovator, and craftsman, Xavier Boderiou has developed these instruments to play and function beautifully, with a signature visual style. Like the instruments, the reeds and bag are made by Xavier, so they all work together to create the warm, rich tone. A quality bellows unit is included to complete this wonderful package. Once you master this set, you can have regulators added to make it a Full Set. The fingering for Uilleann pipes differs from Highland pipes, so there is an adjustment if you are a Highland piper.  Made by Xavier Boderiou in France.
