SOLD:Eugene Lambe & Eamonn Curran D Full Set - Full set of Uilleann Pipes for sale. Concert pitch D. Fully keyed Chanter made by Eamonn Curran in 2002. Drones, stock and regulators made by Eugene Lambe in late 1980's. New bag and bellows. Case is included in sale price.
These pipes have been recently reeded and are in good working order.
The reason for sale is that I recently got married and was driving my wife mad playing the concert pitch set in the room above the sitting room. So I have recently bought a 'C' set of pipes that can't be heard when Grey's Anatomy is on the telly. However I need the cash from the sale of this 'D' set to pay for the 'C' set.

SOLD:Eugene Lambe D Full Set -
History: I bought these pipes as i was starting to learn in 2006. Based on other sets I've seen, they were probably made in the 80's.
I've subsequently purchased another set and am hoping to sell this set now as I haven't played them for the past 3 years. It's a total waste to have them sitting around any longer. Condition: Overall a good set of pipes. Structurally, they are in great condition, there are no leaks, all the regulator keys are responsive, the bellows is good and air tight, I put a brand new bag on it in 2011, the chanter and the drones are in tune. Issues: I had the set re-reeded in early 2011, but again due to lack of playing and because I have been traveling for the past 14 months, some of them require work. All of the regulator reeds are sounding, but need a bit of work and some playing to get them right . The chanter reed is in tune and sounding pretty good, needs to be played in a bit. Same goes for the drones - playing in tune but need to be played in also. I can put you in touch with the guy who re-reeded the set for me, or for a more experienced piper/reed maker, these issues should be fixed without much difficulty. I'd estimate about $500 would have them playing good as new, hence the cheap selling price listed.
So, if you are interested in a good cheap set, and are willing to invest a little bit of time and/or money - these are for you. They are only being sold because I literally never use them, and haven't the time, knowledge or interest anymore to do anything with them. I need to sell asap, so am open to offers.
I also will include a nice wooden case for anyone living in Ireland (too awkward to post abroad) Listed: 10/31/2012 Sold: 05/09/2013 Price:Reduced:$3100/€2400 $2400/€1900 - Negotiable - [buyer pays shipping & insurance] Currency Converter » Contact: Daire Doolin at dairedoolin(at)gmail(dot)com or +35387 6311237 » Please use caution when sharing personal information!

SOLD:Martin Preshaw D Chanter - in Ebony, Brass and Boxwood, with a C natural key. Made in 2006 or 2007. I am the second owner, originally purchased by Billy Jackson, the harpist/piper in the Scottish band Ossian. Really nice sounding and playing chanter, very easy to reed with no issues.
This chanter hasn't been played much lately, so the reed is not at its best. I'll include three reeds I made for it, but because I am not a professional reed maker, I can't guarantee you'll like them/they'll work in your climate. That being said, all three play reasonably well at the moment, and as I said, this is a very easy chanter to reed.

SOLD:Brad Angus C ½ Set + Case - C chanter with wood chanter top and blocked for keys and shut off key for chanter top, no keys at this time.
Hollow mainstock with hand rolled brass tubing and ferrules. Old style bellows with strap and leather thong style elbow attachment. Pad in elbow side and no pad on hip side. Made in the style of a Harrington C set.
The case is a Tim Britton case.
In new condition since it has been played little. Brad went over it last Spring and it is sound. It is about 2 years old.
No problems outside of normal weather related chanter reed issues. Drones are solid and have never let me down. It comes with an extra chanter reed. It also comes with a few tenor drone reeds that I have never needed or used, but they are there. I have never polished the brass since that is not a look I favor.
It is made from Ebony with Boxwood mounts. All the metal parts are brass and hand rolled including the ferrules, tubing and drone switch. It has a brass hand rolled swan style chanter neck. The tubing has a slightly flat profile found in older style sets where all the work was hand rolled. Hollow mainstock with provision for three regulators. The bellows are rough side out on the leather and the Boxwood valve matches the rest of the mounts.
The reason for selling is I have pain playing anything longer than a D chanter, even slightly longer like this chanter. I prefer the sound but I can't do it for more than about ten minutes, which helps to explain the new condition.
$2800 shipped in the U.S. $2300 without bellows in case you already have a bellows you prefer or don't like the style of bellows offered.

SOLD:Richard Patkos B Chanter - For sale is a B Chanter I acquired from Richard Patkos a week ago. The chanter plays nicely in tune and with ease. The Chanter looks to be in Ebony, Im. Ivory and brass with a wooden reed cap. This chanter can make up a nice practice set for a beginner/Intermediate player or for someone looking to get into some flat piping. This chanter pretty much has the same finger spread as my C chanter. I play my concert pitch set exclusively now a days and I know this chanter will not get any playing time which is why I'm selling it. The chanter comes with a nice playing reed from the maker. I will entertain trades for a Hi D whistle(s), Longboard (Bing, Cooperfish, Stewart maybe ect.). Richard Patkos sells these for 830 Euros. This chanter maybe has one hour of playing time on it. I'm looking to get around $650.00 for it. Thank you for your interest. Please feel free to email me for more information.

SOLD:Seth Gallagher Full Set Body (4 drones w/ switch) - Enclosed are pix of my D concert set body (which is drones, bag, bag stocks and regs)
There are 4 drones. The additional A-Drone is operated w/ a switch. All drones are reeded in cane, but I will also include a trio of wooden body/cane tongue drone reeds. These are more weather resistant than cane regs, and are a $400 value.
The regs I've reeded with all w/spruce reeds. Not only do they sound great, but they too function in dry weather.
This is a superb sounding, air tight, in-tune set that I'm selling for a low price.
Please, serious inquires only...

SOLD:Richard Patkos D Chanter - Richard Patkos Taylor style concert chanter. Made in summer of 2012 and the materials are ebony, boxwood and brass. Only used a few times and is in great condition. This is a very well made chanter and has very nice tone. I am selling it cause I am only using my D and C Kennedy chanter's and the Patkos chanter goes unused for months and months at a time. I'm sad to let it go, but I'd rather see a good chanter like this one played all the time. Richard has come a long way with his pipe making and his craftsman ship is top notch.
This chanter is currently in Joe Kennedy's shop as he is preparing to make a few reeds for it. The chanter does not come with a windcap as I am using it for my C chanter. Joe has informed me that he would be happy to make a top for this chanter or retro fit it to an already existing top. Please contact him for prices.
I am selling the chanter for $1200 cdn which comes with a reed made by Kennedy, the original Patkos reeds and free shipping within Canada and the US. If you wish to have a more rushed shipping with insurance then additional prices may be applied. Same applies if it is to be shipped over seas.

SOLD:Charles Roberts D ¾ Set - I am reluctantly selling my ¾ set of Uilleann pipes in concert pitch as I have recently purchased a full set. The pipes are located in Canberra, Australia. In 1997 I purchased the original pipes from Charles as a half set made of ebony, brass and imitation ivory. They were upgraded by Charles Roberts in approx 2003 to the ¾ set and it includes a blackwood stock. Charles seems to have ceased making pipes and moved from Ireland shortly after this so I have been unable to have him amend them to a full set. I have recently purchased a full set so these pipes are now surplus to my needs.
The pipes are playing well and include some reeds made by Ian McKenzie and some by myself and they have been played in live performances since 2000. I must admit that I have rarely used the regulators. The drones include a tenor, baritone and bass but also include a unique drone which can be tuned to both A and G (or off) to provide harmony within the drones. This drone sound is distinctive and highly desirable. The chanter has intermediate bore and is made of ebony and brass, with chromed ferrule and includes one C natural key. The original bag and bellows are air tight and work well. Problems? One artificial ivory mount on the baritone regulator is chipped (see photo) and one block on a regulator is slightly chipped but these blemishes do not affect the playing of the instrument.
Asking 3,800 euro (AUD$4,800). I will pack and send pipes but freight costs and insurance will be purchaser responsibility.

SOLD:Des Seery D Full Set - Seery full set in concert D with original bellows, chanter, drones, stocks and regulators (and original regulator reeds). I bought this set used about 6 years ago and have enjoyed playing it as a half set after I removed and plugged the regulators. I am not sure when the set was made, but it is in good condition, of sturdy construction with very nice detail and craftsmanship. Made of ebony, ivoroid and brass. There is typical wear generally and small chips on some of the ivoroid parts (see photo). There is brass reinforcement on some keys and mounts and new pads on a few of the regulator keys. Twist type air shut-off on the four-keyed chanter. The chanter is playing very nicely in both octaves and with excellent tone. Two additional chanter reeds are included. The regulators sound but should need some adjustment and tuning or reed by someone who is knowledgeable about regulators. The drones are very stable with cane body/plastic tongue reeds. Am selling because I am not using this set to it's full potential and am scaling down my time committed to playing.

SOLD:Jim Carroll D Chanter - For sale, a Jim Carroll concert pitch chanter in cocobolo, boxwood mounts, and brass. The chanter has mounts for all four keys but is keyless. Jim apprenticed under Davy Stephenson in England and therefore his work has a similar look.
I've had this chanter for a couple of years now and have loved having it. I've found this chanter to be easy to reed and to have great tone and tuning. It also is very comfortable to hold. I am the original owner. There is nothing at all damaged on the chanter with the exception of a small scratch above the "C" whole which is just cosmetic. The bore and wholes have not been altered.
The chanter comes with two reeds. The first is made from spruce wood by reed master Michael O'Donovan. It has no bridal as Michael believes it hurts the tone of the spruce. The second reed is cane and is made by myself. It is around 6 months old and has been played in wet and dry climate situations. The cane reed is easier blowing and (I think) has better tone than the spruce reed. But the spruce reed plays just fine and will play in just about every environments. This spruce reed plays especially best in dry situations where a cane reed would close up or go wonky. In the future, if something was to happen to the reeds, I would be more than willing to make a cane reed for free.
I'm asking $1100 US OBO. Buyer to pay shipping. Will ship world-wide insured. I have a few more pics that can be sent by email.

SOLD:Sam Lawrence D Chanter - Peter Hunter Design D chanter - Crafted by Sam Lawrence.
I bought this chanter new in 2011 and is in perfect condition (as you can see from the photos). Made of Pala Santo and boxwood for the mounts, medium bore, F natural and C natural brass keys, possibility to add more keys for mounts are presents but not keyed. Really responsive, the chanter is well in tune with itself, being a learner myself i probably didn't get the best of it, but a very lively chanter, a solid hard D, and a very stable, esy to reach second octave (grace notes not needed above high G which i found quite amazing), and a excellent tone. I'm selling the chanter because my heart went to wooden flute and barely play pipes anymore. The sale of this chanter will be reinvested in a better Flute. I hope to find a good home for that beautiful chanter and know that somebody will play it. Reed included, possibility to get the bag as an extra. I wish to get back roughly the same amount i spent on it which is £1200 + postage&insurance. Sam Lawrence website: http://hunterpipes.co.uk/, more pictures or information available on demand.

SOLD:B.C. Childress D Full Set - A full set of uilleann pipes in 'D' made by B. C. Childress. An instrument I acquired about six months ago and have given a thorough restoration, however, I simply don't have the time to learn to play the pipes(I play hurdy-gurdy and flute) and so I am reluctantly putting the pipes back on the market.
The instrument comes with two chanters; one by Childress with four keys and a second single keyed chanter made by the Irish luthier Kevin Thompson. Both chanters are from African Blackwood and are supplied with their individual brass chanter tops and cut-off valves.
The drones and regulators are also turned from ABW with brass ferrules, keys and imitation ivory decoration. The bag has recently been replaced and the bag cover is new. The bellows is also new and in perfect condition. The instrument is supplied with a carrying case and a selection of reeds.
A couple of photos are attached. Any further questions please contact me.

SOLD:Hubert Kwisthout D ½ Set - This half set has lived on top of my wardrobe for the past six years or so as I returned to college a mature student.
Made for me by Hubert Kwisthout C.1992. The drones and chanter are in African Blackwood with brass fittings - the stock is in mahogany with brass fittings - the leather bellows are faced in oak. The drones are fitted with modern metal/plastic drone reeds - the chanter is reeded but the reed needs fettling. I have short stubby fingers and had two raised (antique ivory) dots embedded above the E and F holes to facilitate finger placement. Its a shame to let these pipes lay fallow.

SOLD:C.J. Dixon D ½ Set - The set is in very good condition and has not been played very often.
No issues, drones played three times for less than 10 minutes.
The chanter is African Blackwood as are the caps for the drones, this gives more stability as it is a single piece of wood. Chanter was constructed in 2010 and drones completed in 2012. Chanter and Drones are decorated with Celtic knot work (see pictures). Chanter is equipped with stop and four extra keys. Many extras!
Selling to focus on other music, Jazz and blues. I have worked on trying to play Uilleann pipes for almost 10 years off and on. I have learned that it takes far more dedication that I am willing to spend with a demanding job and two little ones at home.
Based on turnover time and CJ's quality of work I am asking $3500 plus actual shipping. I will cover packing materials but insurance and cost to ship will be covered by buyer. I will ship internationally for cost of actual shipping.
The audio sample was done on my iPhone and played by me so there are some limitations. The drones are not tuned and the chanter would be far more beautiful by someone who knew what they were doing! The single audio file begins with chanter only and ends with drones only.

SOLD:Seth Gallagher D Full Set - D Full Set bought in 2007 in perfect condition (see pictures)
Made of Ebony, brass and faux ivory. Chanter ( N°403 ) has 2 keys (Fnat and Cnat)
This set has not been played for a long time ( since I got my B set from Andreas Rogge) but all reeds (chanter+drones) have been kept away from weather changes.(Chanter needs of course to be played to recover its full potential but still plays very well as it is)
Little regulator brass reed needs to be changed (Seth will do it for $50)
It comes with one of Seth's pipe cases. Reason for selling: I am now playing a B set from Andreas Rogge and it is a pitty to leave such a great instrument in its case.

SOLD:Seth Gallagher D Full Set - I'm selling this great set to help fund the purchase of a flat set. This ebony/brass set has been my main workhorse for several years, and has served me well. I bought it used and had it overhauled by pipemaker Tim Benson. This included a new MacHarg bag, new valves, new bag / bellows connector, and new tenor / baritone reg reeds. The set is airtight and plays well. The chanter has C and F keys. It has two minor cosmetic issues (see pics): the tip of the baritone drone cap broke off and was epoxied back on. There is also some wear on the bottom of the mainstock. I will also include a hardshell case with the set. If you have any questions about it don't hesitate to ask!

Removed:Marc van Daal D Full Set - Ebony, imitation ivory, brass mounts, new bag tied in by Seth Gallagher, Tenor reg sent back to Marc to make a repair on block and serviced all pads on that reg, new reg reed on baritone by Seth, and new chanter reed by Seth as he is local maker to me. Original van Daal reeds to go along with set. using ezee drone reeds. the set is in great shape and well in tune. Marc is a master pipe maker from the Netherlands, if you have seen his pipes you know how well they are crafted. I bought them on impulse as a new piper with grand ambitions. I am far from ready for the full the set. I have a Seth Gallagher 1/2 set that suits me for now and hate to see this set sit around. It should be played in sessions. I paid $4900.00 and put some funds into it to get it air tight and in tune here in the States. Prefer to ship to US locations, but willing to ship farther. Buyer Pays all shipping. Comes in a handmade wooden case (coffin) that is well made.

SOLD:Alain Froment D Chanter - I have my Froment D Chanter up for sale and the following is a description of it's condition: In very good shape overall. Has a Stop key plus 5 other keys....C, F(on the left hand little finger), G#, Bflat, and another key that is probably a high C#. Comes with two reeds, one I built myself which is working fairly good, and one that is an O'Donovan which is marginal but usable. Made of blackwood and nickel silver with bone decorations. I'm selling the chanter due to a couple reasons...one, the scalloped finger holes are difficult for my hands, and I'm getting a new chanter in a few months. I've included two photos but do not have a sound bite as of now...perhaps I can figure out how to get that in there at some later time.
