Bagpipes Galore had been trading in Edinburgh for 19 years. Our aim was to offer an alternative to old fashioned and often unhelpful bagpipe suppliers. Recently we have moved to a new premises at Haymarket.The business was started in the early 1990s by Ralph Hepburn and is now managed by Neil MacPhail. Products that we have designed include :
"PRACTICE PIPES" (the biggest selling indoor bagpipe in the world), "STEADY DRONES" (regarded as the best alternative to cane drone reeds), "SUREFIRE SYNTHETIC PIPE CHANTER REED" (also regardsed as the best alternative to cane pipe chanter reeds). Ralph also studied pipe making under Joe Haggan who had started as a lawn bowls maker and moved on to bagpipe manufacture in the 1960s, working for Lawries, Henderson's and then Grainger and Campbell. Joe has now retired but remains firmly in our thoughts.
