McCallum Bellows Smallpipes with Celtic Engraving - A/D Combination
Clever design makes this McCallum smallpipe a very practical combination set. There are 4 drones that stay in the stock, with one plugged in each key. A small slide on one drone converts it from the D bass drone to the A baritone. (The video demonstrates this.) The combination set also includes 2 Blackwood pipe chanters, in A and D. The D chanter, while necessarily small, is relatively comfortable to play. Like other McCallum styles, the combo set has deluxe features, like a cane chanter reed, specialty Ezeedrone drone reeds, and premium bellows. The pipes are ornamented with engraved nickel and Mopani drone accents. The adapter that connects the pipes and the bellows is sturdy and thoughtfully designed. The bellows are made with top-quality materials and operate comfortably and efficiently. Developed with Fred Morrison. Made in Scotland.
Features of McCallum Bellows Combination A/D Pipes:
  • All Blackwood construction
  • Nickel mounts with Celtic engraving
  • Mopani drone tops
  • Engraved nickel mouthpiece accent
  • Bannatyne zipper pipe bag
  • Reliable EzeeDrone specialty drone reeds
  • Cane chanter reed
  • 4 Drones (3 used with each key)

The Duncan MacRae SL4 is heart of the series, with a special Thistle engraving on ferrules, slides, and ring caps. The MacRae series of bagpipes are reproductions based on Stuart Liddell's own rare set. McCallum precisely replicated Stuart's antique instrument, down to the different sized tenor tops. Although made by McCallum, MacRae sets are tonally distinct, with a stronger bass sound and a uniquely blended drone effect. The result is a modern vintage instrument suited to a champion. Made in Scotland by McCallum.
Features of the MacRae SL4 Bagpipes:
  • Fully combed and beaded African Blackwood
  • Imitation ivory projecting mounts
  • MacRae Thistle engraved ferrules, slides, and ring caps
  • Middle tenor top ferrule is marked with an "M"
  • Brass-lined Blackwood blowpipe
  • Mouthpiece with imitation ivory bulb and engraved alloy sleeve
  • McCallum Polypenco pipe chanter
  • Unique serial number in bass top cord groove
  • Authentication tag signed by Stuart Liddell

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.
Features of the Gibson Poly Firesides:
  • Durable Poly instrument
  • Can go anywhere, including across international borders without issue
  • No slender wood tuning pins
  • Very nice look with brass accents
  • Synthetic pipe bag (one size fits all)
  • Full set of long-lasting plastic reeds
  • Bag cover (color as supplied by Gibson)
  • Silk cord
  • Change the key: Purchase a "B flat" Firesides chanter and reed set, and you'll have an "Bflat" set, too.
The Blackwood Gibson R111 has a simple, refined look. Plain-turned drones show off the character of the Blackwood, and stainless steel ferrules add an appealing low-maintenance accent. Special features like a telescopic blowpipe, poly blowpipe stock, and Fast-Trap watertrap  are standard and add to the convenience and durability of the instrument.The Gibson brand is known for tone. Made in the USA.
