The making in a set of uilleann pipes is a challenging process which crosses into the boundaries of a variety of skills such as wood turning, leather work, jewellery and reed making. Over the years I have changed my design and now follow a pattern from plans I have fine tuned over the years. I get a great kick out of playing an instrument I have made but it’s a greater delight to hear these instruments being played regularly by others.
Prices start at €1350 for a basic 1/4 set of uilleann pipes which includes bellows, bag, chanter with integral mounts, a C key, a case and a spare reed. If you would like more details on other sets, further information can be given on request.
