This set of Highland Bagpipes is made from a modern engineering plastic called Delrin which we have thoroughly tested over a period of time and it is the closest match to the traditional African Blackwood. These pipes are extremely popular but make no mistake these are the best sets of plastic pipes available. At this price its a real bargain!! This set of bagpipes come with full ferules - for those who like something a bit more fancy and eye catching, a synthetic bag, drone reeds, chanter reed, pipe chanter, cords, cover, fully hemped and ready to play. Each set is play tested before they are sent.
Please note: Cover and cords may differ from picture due to stock.

Product: Plain turn Delrin setFrom: Kenneth SmithDate: 01/18/2012 Plain turn Delrin setReview:I have purchased the Plain turn Delrin set w/ a zippered synthetic and hide Bannatyne Bag (extra cost over standard). They sound fantastic,look great and are as low maintenance as you can get. Perfect for playing in harsh weather conditions military pipers should appreciate this. The personnel at the shop were of great help. A less expensive alternative to the Wood Pipes, very durable and easy to sanitize.Rating: 5 of 5 Stars! [5 of 5 Stars!]lise Hepburn
19 Oct 2015Really like the Delrin pipes. Always play straightaway. Such a change from constant fiddling with traditional pipes. No longer play in pipe bands so these are perfect. Fast postage too to Australia and questions always answered quickly. All the best.
Surefire Synthetic Pipe Reed
The Easy reeds are the perfect reed for the beginner, child or ageing piper. They have a nice tone and will give results that will last and last when compared to cane reeds.
The Medium/Easy are the best selling of the Surefire reeds. They have a good volume and will last much longer than the conventional reeds. Quite often people will assume you are blowing a much harder reed.
The Medium reeds have good volume and tone and are best suited to the more experienced player. Extra strength will ensure some extra volume (but at a cost).
*Warning* The Strong reeds are very challenging and are only suitable for a very experienced player. It is packed with volume and tone and not for the faint hearted!
Made in Scotland, "Practice Pipes" are a complete set of pipes that retail at a fraction of the price of conventional bagpipes, however maintaining a high quality of sound.
The set includes the Bag, Drones, Blowstick, Long Deluxe Chanter, Bag Cover, Chanter Reed, Drone Reeds and Carry Bag. Perfect for long practice sessions in the house even at night. The set includes two brass drones (one bass drone, one tenor drone). As a smaller quieter set it requires less "puff" to play, thus it has proved to be very popular with younger / beginner players. This set is preferred by pipers due to the hole spacings and comes with a long practice chanter pitched around Bflat (Bb).
Scottish Smallpipes Mouthblown
These smallpipes come with two drones and are in the key of 'A'. They feature a breathable synthetic bag, bag cover and carry case. They have a lovely rich tone and have enough volume for most folk sessions.
Delrin Synthetic Highland Bagpipes
This Highland Bagpipe, made by Bagpipes Galore, is made of Delrin and is the most popular as a starter set. It is also widely used to travel around with as they are much stronger than African Blackwood. The set has a synthetic bag and comes with the chanter. They come ready to play out of the box-fully reeded and tested.
Steady Drone Synthetic Drone Reeds
This is a great sounding set of Scottish Drone reeds coming complete with three drone stabilisers (that fit into the bottom of the drone stocks).
