Gibson Polypenco Firesides with Brass – A

Brand: Gibson BagpipesSKU: R103-PPB


Gibson Polypenco Firesides with Brass

Firesides in the key of "A" are most compatible with guitars, fiddles and whistles. If you're thinking about playing  in a Celtic Folk group, the "A" model is your best choice.  The "A" chanter has a slightly wider finger spread on the lower notes than the "Bflat." Firesides are our top-selling smallpipes and have earned this title for their appearance, ease of maintenance, and quality Gibson tone. If you already play the Great Highland Pipes, you will find transitioning to the Firesides relatively easy. A baritone drone, instead of the second tenor on the Highland pipes, adds another dimension of sound.  The Firesides are a great value!  Made in the U.S.A.
