SOLD:Michael Hubbert D ¾ Set - I am selling my 3/4 D set by Michael Hubbert of Northern California. I have had the set since 2007 and it has been very good to me. The set is made of ebony, nickel silver, and mammoth ivory. It has traveled with me to Japan, Ireland, all over The United States, and Canada. They've been my workhorse for playing music full time never once letting me down.
The set has been repaired twice. While I was living in Japan a faulty case latch sent my pipes tumbling out chipping ivory mounts (please see photos) and breaking off the F# baritone regulator key mount. Also the C natural tenor regulator key mount broke off during a rapid tuning instance before a performance this past summer. Both have been repaired in the up most artistry that could be expected of such a truly wonderful maker where the repairs even when looked for cannot be seen. Also, an "after market" modification I have made was a flexible blowpipe tied in by piper and pipe-maker extraordinaire Mickey Dunne while I was living in Limerick, Ireland.
The cane chanter reed works great and in tune all the way up to the third octave D.
The spruce regulator reeds are steady, in tune, and strong. They are a hair louder than the chanter (for live performance purposes), but can be switched out for quieter reeds at anytime. The spruce reeds mean that they are less susceptible to very low are high humidity.
The drones are also, just as dependable. A mix of cane for the tenor, mahogany body and spruce tongue for the baritone, and brass body and spruce tongue for the bass. These reeds have NEVER shut off. From Prince Edward Island to San Diego to Western Virgina to Denver, Colorado they have never let me down.
I am selling the set for 9,000 dollars. I spoke to Michael and he told me that this was the best price for a set made of these materials.

SOLD:Neil O'Grady D Full Set - They are cocobolo, with brass and maple. Half set made in 2001 and regulators added in 2010. Items included:
D Chanter with C Natural Key
Bag purchased Dec 2011 from Jackie Boyce
Many replacement reeds made by Neil (5 chanter,3 tenor regulator reeds, 2 baritone regulator reeds, 3 bass regulator reeds)
Set of 3 drone reeds (bass and baritone are ezee drone reeds)
Homemade wooden case, if you want it, but it's a little heavy (~15lbs). Condition:
Wood is in perfect condition, no cracks.
Brass is in good condition and has developed a nice patina.
Bag is fairly new and air tight.
Regulator keys may need some adjusting as there are one or two that are a currently little sticky, but all the pads seal well.

Reeds are generally good currently (see video for more) may need to be re-readed due to humidity change at new location.
I have been playing this set since 2009 and it is a very nice beginner level instrument to get started on. I am selling because I'm the proud new owner of an Adreas Rogge Full set and so this set has unfortunately now become redundant.

SOLD:Geoff Wooff D Full Set (no bellows) - I have reluctantly decided that it is time to part with my Geoff Wooff full set in D. This set was made in 1981, and I am the second owner. The set is made of ebony, brass and ivory. It has a wide bore chanter with 3 keys (high C, F nat, G sharp), different than the narrow bore D chanters Geoff makes now. I am selling the set without bellows, but with a custom hard case, made by Geoff for this set.
I had the pipes fully re-reeded a couple of years ago by Allan Moller (drones/regs) and Alan Burton (chanter). The set looks, sounds and plays wonderfully. It never fails to get a lot of attention, and more than one piper has commented that it has some of the sweetest drones they have ever heard.
My primary reason for selling is to fund the restoration of a 19th century C sharp set I acquired a couple of years ago.
Please email me with questions, for more information and fuller details on the pipes. I am based in the London, and am happy to arrange to meet up with UK pipers interested.

SOLD:Lorcan Dunne Deluxe D ½ Set Lorcan Dunne Deluxe Half Set in D, in Ebony and German Silver. Chanter has two keys, F-nat and C-nat, and comes with a stop key. Chanter plays great, and the drones are haunting. Everyone that hears them says they are phenomenal. Set comes with Bass Regulator Bar pre-attached. Chanter comes with two brand new reeds from Joe Kennedy, just got them the week of December 25th. The drones come with synthetic Bruce Childress drones reeds which are rock solid. Set also comes with a lockable hard case. Set also comes with scrap leather and spare tying in twine. The set is very fun to play. The bag that is tied onto the set is a special custom MacHarg bag, made to the regular measurements, but the leather is much thicker, but still very pliable. Much better than a thinner leather bag. Condition: The set has a chipped mount on the Baritone drone, and the mainstock has the engraving of the 1st owners name on it: "Made for Zachary Abbott, by Lorcan Dunne, Kenmare" the engraving is very small and you can barely see it. I am the 2nd owner. I am willing to sell my set piecemeal. Additional pictures available here.

SOLD:Mark Donohoe D ¾ Set I purchased the half set from Mark less then 2yrs ago and I picked up the regulators this summer. The pipes are in Nickle Silver, Ebony and Im. Ivory. Marks craftsmanship is excellent and all the nickle silver is hand rolled. The chanter is equipped with a C and F key an all nickel silver stop key wind cap. The chanter holes are slightly scalloped giving a nice feel when playing. I had Mark put the bass regulator bar on when I got the regs. so I didn't have to send it back to him for the addition of the bass regulator. Its also worth mentioning that if you decide to get the bass reg. it will be a lot less money because half of it is already made and mounted.
Marks customer service is second to none. He is better then great to deal with. He answers his emails very fast and will solve and issues that may arise in a very timely matter. I tried to play the regs in the sound clip but I haven't had them very long so its a bit of a struggle. If anyone lives in the Philadelphia area and would like to try them out just let me know.

The chanter is in immaculate; as new condition with Richard's original reed. Price new was $1500.

SOLD:Tim Benson Boxwood D Chanter Chanter was made by Tim back in sping/summer 2010. It comes with Cnat, Fnat x 2 (wrap around and regular style), G# and Bflat. This chanter is a direct copy of a very good Rowsome chanter owned by a popular mainstream piper of today(ask Tim for more info regarding this). It's a very good chanter and it will surely please pipers who love Rowsome style chanter. Tim's work is very nice and plays very well. I am only selling this chanter because I own 2 concert chanters and not using this one as much. This chanter is in very good condition with very few marks on it. A new reed is needed, so upon sale of this chanter, I will gladly ship it to Tim to be reeded up (at my cost both reed and shipping.) If the buyer does not like the cocobolo windcap and wants to buy the chanter without it, I will take $150 off the asking price so a matching wind cap can be purchased by Tim.

SOLD:Hubert Kwisthout D ½ Set Made by Hubert Kwisthout back in 1997. This set is in very good shape as it has barely been used.
Jeremy Keddy (Nova Scotia, Canada) got this set playing in acceptable order. The bag is in great condition and has been retied. All pipe pieces have been re-hemped, blowpipe valve remade and brass has been polished (still lots of tarnishing due to the pipes being left in a pipe box for years.)
The keyless chanter has a really nice feel and plays in tune (although a new reed from a pro maker is recommend.)
All drones are going and the chanter reed is playing fairly well (2nd octive is a little on the flat side). The chanter reed still needs some time to break in before the overall balance is comfortable.
The set comes with pipe case and an attractive blue velvet bag.
This set is a great and affordable way to get into the wonderful world of Irish piping. It is strongly recommend to only buying this set if you have access to a ner by reed maker or a strong piping community.
Please check out Hubert's website as this will give you a better idea of his pipes and what materials he likes to use.

SOLD:Britton Deluxe D ½ SetDrones, bag and bellows are sold. Chanter still available - $2000. Made in early 2009, these elegant pipes by Tim Britton are made of blackwood and brass. Fully keyed blackwood chanter with wooden top. Keys for C-nat, F-nat, G#, and Bb. Chanter top features a unique twist-valve used to shut off air flow to chanter. Enables player to keep both hands on chanter or to use the drones while playing other instruments. Drones are pitched in D, but have enough tuning range to be adjusted down to "C" if desired. Drone reeds are Tim's upgraded composite reeds using a blackwood cylinder with a cane tongue. Features a 4th drone pitched in "A" with its own separate shut-off switch. Both bass and baritone drones feature a hollow resonator bell and U-bend, providing more volume and resonance to these two drones. Mainstock is hollow and made of cherry. Extra large elkhide bag. Bellows are also cherry wood and feature a unique quick strap-in system using brass clips. See Tim's site for more specific descriptions of features: skep.com/britton
One Britton-made chanter reed is included. Reed plays easily through second octave with moderate pressure. Condition: Good condition. Brass is unpolished, with a nice vintage patina. I'll let you do the polishing if you want the set shiny! Issues: The "A" drone tenon was damaged before I got the set, but has since been repaired by the maker. Tim's reeds are made bridle-less, however, I have fitted it with a brass collar to allow for more adjustment. Upon purchase, the set can be sent to Tim Britton if you would like him to balance it or if extra chanter reeds are desired. Reason for sale: Need funds for graduate school.
With upgrades the set costs over $6300 with at least a 2-3 year wait list. Listed: 03/21/2011 Sold: 09/05/2011 Price: $5800 - [buyer pays shipping & insurance] Currency Converter » Contact: Nathan Fox at firstname.lastname@example.org » Pictures:

SOLD:Peter Hunter D ½ Set - Commissioned from Peter in 2000, the set is in Sri Lankan ebony with hand-rolled brass ferrules and antique ivory mounts. The chanter has one key fitted (C natural) and has blocks to accept the fitting of additional keys.
The set has just been fettled by Sam Lawrence of Hunter Pipes (Peter's protégé) which included the fitting of new chanter and bass drone reeds and a new bag. The bellows are stitched in the traditional manner and look and work great.
The set is in excellent playing order and sounds stunning, as the attached sound files prepared by Sam demonstrate.
The reason for the sale is the usual sad combination of financial necessity (my third child arrived a month ago) combined with a lack of time to play and do justice to the set (see above!) which is also in excellent cosmetic order having only ever been played at home.
The Hunter Pipes waiting list is currently closed and a similar set made by Sam, when available, would cost in the region of £2500.
This is a rare opportunity to buy one of the very last sets made by Peter Hunter before his retirement from pipe-making. My asking price is therefore £3000 with sensible near offers considered.

SOLD: Cillian O'Briain D Chanter Fully-keyed concert pitch chanter made by Cillian O Briain. I acquired this chanter from a friend in Toronto around 1995, who bought it directly from Cillian during a visit to Dingle some years before that.
The chanter has 5 handforged brass keys, a brass top and scalloped toneholes. Last time I ran into Cillian a few years back he said it was probably made around 1988. It is a one-of-a-kind prototype. It is a strong and resonant chanter that has been my main chanter for 15 years, used for gigging and recording. Most recently reeded a couple of years ago by Allan Moller, and playing well.
I hate to let it go, but since acquiring a Wooff D set a couple of years ago I rarely play it anymore. It is too good an instrument to be left unplayed, despite my sentimental attachment to it. It deserves a new home where it will be fully enjoyed.
The chanter is in great condition, bar one small chip on the top wooden block of the high C key. I have tried to show this in one of the photos.
This is a unique opportunity to acquire a one-of-a-kind chanter by one of today's top makers. Asking 1500 euros (plus shipping), or nearest offer. The chanter is currently in London.
More photos and soundfiles available on request. Thanks.

SOLD: Childress ½ Set: I am going to part with my uilleann pipes to help pay for a new 8 key flute; I got the flute and the pipes at the same time and the flute won.
I got the set in 2004 and they were made in 1997. They are rosewood, imitation ivory mounts and brass ferrules. The chanter is blackwood with imitation ivory and brass. I have adapted them to take a Nigel Richard set of bellows that I had spare from the borders I play, as they were in much better condition and they work well. They have been re-reeded by Alan Burton. There is a small crack in the chanter stock, it's easy to fix but haven't got around to it as it closes up when the chanter is in.
There are also a few very small tarnish marks on the middle section of the bass drone when it was left in the box when it had got a slight spatter of something before being put in.
I've attached a sound sample, please excuse the playing as I've not touched them since I tried to learn them a few years ago but I hope it gives you an idea of the sound. I'm including a box in the price which was made by a cabinet maker friend of mine, you have to take the bass out to fit them in but it's a really solid and airtight case plus it's well cushioned.

I don't play so much these days and have an alternative chanter by Colin Jerry for when I do.

SOLD: CJ Dixon B Chanter in cocobolo with 2 keys. The chanter was made by CJ Dixon in 2008 from cocobolo with blackwood mounts and brass metalwork. It has a lovely warm, rich tone. I've owned it for over a year and I've very much enjoyed playing it. I'm selling to fund another project. Last April, I sent it to CJ to change the headpiece for the "Swan Neck" design, which I find both more comfortable and better looking. CJ also added the Cnat and Fnat keys. It comes with the original reed (I changed the bridle) as well as one that I made. No issues: the chanter is in excellent condition.
If interested, I could add a bag and bellows, at additional cost, to make this into a practice set.

SOLD: Seth Gallagher ¾ C Set This set was made for me this year by Seth with nickel silver and imitation ivory. The chanter (which, frankly, I'd Really like to keep) is one of the best I've ever played. Even Seth......(his own severest critic) didn't want to give it up. Wooden top with three keys (Stop,C&F). The set is in perfect nick, though the buyer will need to supply her or his own bellows as I'm keeping my Dow. Price with chanter $7500. If you're interested in the set sans chanter, please drop me a line and we'll discuss. I really love playing this set (the drones with the cane reeds are lovely), but I need to raise cash and my concert pitch set keeps me in the gig market, so..... Here is an opportunity to obtain a top class flat along with something else heretofore unheard of in the piping world..... Instant Gratification! Thank you for looking and please contact me with any questions. I will respond promptly.

SOLD: David Stephenson D Chanter - It is in new - unused condition. I ordered it two years ago, expecting it in one year. During that wait, I had hand surgery that went bad. I lost any ability to play that I had, and see no sign of regaining the hand dexterity. I just recieved the pipe in January 2010. It has one key plus two extra blocks. The wood is holly. It has one new-unused reed sent with the pipe. Shipping is $20 in the USA, 20 pounds in the UK. Sorry, I can't give an audio sample. I can not grasp the pipe.

SOLD: Tadhg Crowley ¾ D Set - 3/4 set in D made in the 1930s by Tadhg Crowley of Cork with additional fully keyed concert pitch chanter made by Cillian O Briain.
Having recently acquired a full set in D by Geoff Wooff, the time has come to reluctantly part with this set, which I have been playing continually for the past 10 years. The set and both chanters were completely re-reeded by Allan Moller in 2009, and sound and play wonderfully.
This is one of the earliest Crowley sets of the several I have seen. It was originally owned by John Duibhir of Ardara, Co. Donegal. After his death in the 1980s they came into the possession of a local publican in town, from whom I bought the set in 2000 while I was living nearby in north Sligo.
The set is made of fruitwood, stained black to appear as blackwood. The metalwork is brass (handforged keys and hand rolled ferrules) and the mounts are catalin (a type of artificial ivory that turns to orange over the years, common on Crowley sets and those of some other earlier makers).
There have been some repairs carried out on the set over the decades, although it remains almost all original. The bottom half of the tenor drone is a replacement, made of blackwood in a style to match the rest of the set. But for this single piece, all the other wooden parts are original, and all are stamped with the maker’s mark, ‘T. Crowley, Cork’.
The mount on the baritone drone is a replacement, made of false ivory and stained to match the originals. It has been cracked and re-glued at some point in time but is otherwise solid. One of the regulator mounts is also cracked, but airtight. A touch of super glue should further solidify it if desired, although I myself have never bothered as it does not affect the playing. Neither crack is noticeable except on close inspection. The mount on the tenor drone although different in colour than the others is original. I have seen other Crowley sets of similar vintage with this identical white tenor drone mount.
I had a new drone shut-off switch installed by Andy Faden of Bedford, UK in 2009, and the set has an L&M bag that I had put on it several years ago.
The original Crowley chanter (as is the case with all Crowley chanters I have ever seen) plays sharp of modern concert pitch (closer to D sharp). It is a sweet sounding chanter nonetheless with a wooden top and one high C key. Both the chanter and top bear the Crowley maker’s mark.
The O Briain chanter I acquired from a friend around 1995, who bought it directly from Cillian during a visit to Dingle some years before that. It has 5 handforged brass keys, a brass top and scalloped toneholes. Last time I ran into Cillian a few years back he thought it was probably made around 1988. It is a one-of-a-kind prototype. It is a strong and resonant chanter that has been my main chanter for 15 years, used for gigging and recording.
The drones and regs are set up to play in modern concert D along with the O Briain chanter. I carry the entire set in a padded tenor saxophone case, which is included with the sale.
The entire set is in tune and beautifully balanced. I play it out at sessions every week, so it is well maintained. This is a unique opportunity to acquire a lovely vintage set of pipes that will be playing for you straight out of the box, as well as a one-of-a-kind chanter by one of today’s top makers.
The set comes with a Michael Dow bellows.
Asking price, €10,000 ono. Reduced: to UK£6500. The pipes are in London. The buyer will be responsible for shipping and insurance costs.

SOLD: Brad Angus D Full Set This set was bought in 1999 and I've recently had the chanter and drones reeded and the set made airtight. Reeds are working here in CO at altitude, dry climate. The set is made of blackwood and brass. The regulators need some work on the reeds, but overall the set plays well, particularly the chanter. As far as condition, the bellows are functional, but not as comfortable as some sets I've played. The case is a quite simple plywood box. The stock is tied up rather high on a large bag, making the regulators a bit difficult to reach, but this could be remedied by tying into a new bag. I'm selling the set because musical interests have changed and it doesn't make sense to have a set of pipes unplayed in the house. Overall, it's a beautiful set, perhaps one of Brad's earlier works, but nice nonetheless.

SOLD: Coyne Full Set in C
Alas, who knew that college tuition would become so expensive? Due to such things in general, the time has come to send the old Coyne set on its way.
I have had this set for many years and have played it on and off the whole time. It was originally brought over from Ireland by a priest who first went to the Northwest, where the set sat for a while in a violin shop display case, and then came to the Bay Area when the fellow was transferred here. The set wound up with a well-known family of Bay Area Irish musicians, who eventually determined that despite pipers in the family, none took to the Uilleann pipes. The set wound up with me.
A recent comparison with another Coyne set performed by our own Michael Hubbert, pretty well confirms that the drones and at least the tenor regulator are certainly Coyne. The baritone regulator is stamped W. Rousome, so not too much mystery there. The bass, well, no stamps or indications that Coyne did or did not make it.
The main stock is hollow and as can be seen from the photos, was, I think, at one time, left handed. It was changed over somewhere in the murky past.
The chanter top was made by myself to replace a completely un-original lump of brass tubing, and perhaps the ferrule under the chanter top mount as well. Other than that, it is as I got it.
The chanter has a decent reed in it, and plays pretty well, but not particularly easily, and the drones are reeded, but a mysterious air escape makes the set hard for me to drive with the drones on. I'm sure that with a little investigation the cause could be tracked down and rectified. The regulator reeds have, typically, over the years, been given to desperate pipers and never replaced.
Once again, the set is historic and lovely, and deserves to be restored and played. Unfortunately, I don't have the time or energy to devote to it, and higher education demands payment. I hope a suitable home for them can be found.
They live in an old case, and the drone stop valve is a coin dated 1850.

SOLD:Hughes & McLeod Practice Set - I'm selling a Hughes and McLeod practice set in concert D, made in Co. Down, Northern Ireland. Please see my eBay listing at: EBAY This set was made some time in the 1990s, I believe. All parts of the set are in good, playable condition, showing normal cosmetic wear. Great tone, and plays easily and in tune across both octaves. This is an ideal set for a beginner or advancing piper who wants an authentic, serious instrument, not a cheap and frustrating knockoff made in Pakistan. The chanter is turned of blackwood, with brass fittings, brass head joint, and faux ivory trim rings. Stamped “HUGHES & McLEOD. DOWNPATRICK” - The one brass key on the chanter, the long C-natural, is block-mounted. The reed is brand new, custom-made and voiced by pipemaker Brad Angus. Bag is cowhide, covered with burgundy velvet, trimmed in gold fringe. Fittings are of turned blackwood and brass. The bag seems to be airtight, with no leaks. The bellows is stoutly made of heavy black cowhide. I was told it was actually made by the late Dave Williams, but there are no markings to confirm this. Bellows also seems to be airtight.

SOLD:Kirk Lynch D Chanter - Up for sale is a brand new concert D chanter crafted by the great Kirk Lynch. It is crafted from ebony wood with beautiful boxwood mounts. Also has a brass reed cap with old-style swan neck attachment and two keys for G# and Fnat. The tone of the chanter is dark and earthy with strong volume. The playing pressure and volume can be adjusted based on how you set up the reed.
The chanter is about two months old and is essentially un-played. I am selling it because I have another D chanter now that matches my half set and need to liquidate extras to fund a C chanter and regulators. The chanter comes with two reeds from Kirk, both voiced for a warm tone. Kirk’s pipes are in high demand—this is a great opportunity to get a professional chanter without the two year wait!
*** This would be a great addition to the chanter-less Lynch half set also listed here from Zac Leger.

SOLD:Wilkinson-McCarthey Full D Set - I've decided to part with this set. Although I have not had them long, they are a good sounding and playing set. The set was built in London around 1975. It is in great condition and has just recently been tuned up- regulators and drones have been fitted with synthetic reeds made by Childress: Drones: 3 drones featuring a shuttle-type baritone drone- the turns in the pipe are internal, making for a more compact and elegant looking set. Regulators: 3 regulators with straight-type baritone. Chanter: The reed cap with stop key is original to the set, but the chanter has been remade by Childress. Apparently an original ODowd chanter was so badly modified at some point that it was unrepairable. Childress used the original specs, keys and mountings and created a chanter to fit, making it unique. The entire set is blackwood, with brass and mounted in real ivory. What type of ivory I'm not exactly sure: the very apparent schreger lines are greater than 90 degrees but less than 115. However, judging by the pattern and density of the lines- I would say its real elephant ivory. But because the set was manufactured around 1975, it is legal for export and sale since that is well before the 1989 ivory ban. Bellows are air tight and have a comfortable suede pad and long waist strap. I have higher resolution pics I can send upon request. Asking $5,000

SOLD:Kirk Lynch D ½ Set - No Chanter - Great condition. Half set made by Kirk Lynch in 1991, sans chanter. Main stock is walnut with ebony drones. All metal parts are brass. It has served me well over the ten years I have had it. I won a gold medal in the 2003 Mid-Atlantic Fleadh here in the states and took a third in the All-Ireland senior piping competition with it the same year. I play trad music professionally and have used this set on stage and on tour with the likes of Eileen Ivers, Celtic Crossroads, Glen Road, Jamie Laval, Niamh Parsons, John Doyle, the Irish dance show Emerald Beat and on over a dozen recordings. However, I have a new full set coming very soon, so I must sadly part with my old friend in order to procure funds. This set has just been completely refurbished and cleaned up by master wooden flute maker and instrument restorer Jon C. All metal ferrules and parts have been thoroughly cleaned and polished, re-corked and many of the wooden parts rebuffed and refinished. A new blowpipe of very durable, thick black rubber was added which should last for many years. The bellows valve was replaced and completely new, very comfortable arm and waist pads covered with real black leather have been added to the bellows as well. There is no longer a leather flapper valve in the bag at the base of the blowpipe.
Instead I use a garden-hose quick-connect system to attach the bellows and blowpipes together, with a LittleMac highland pipe valve fitted into the male piece of the quick-connect. This makes the set very easy to take apart and connect and very efficient with no need to replace leather valves in the set (no annoying "groaning" noises from settling valves, either). The drones use Kirk's brass and plastic composite reeds and they sound great. I never used the baritone drone as I don't really care for the sound of all three drones going, but I will include all three reeds with the set. A few nicks and dings here and there, but I have had it for ten years and it is in as good of shape as ever.

The chanter was custom ordered in Blackwood and fully keyed for chromatic playing in all scales. In addition, it has a stop key on the chanter top and Nickel Silver works to give it lasting beauty to the eye as well as the ear. The buyer of this set will also get a copy of H.J.

When I bought this chanter from Joe he informed me there was a small crack on the boxwood mount at the bottom (see pic) that he would replace for free. Since I was planning on completing this chanter with drones and regs, I just kept it. Anyway, I can have him replace it before sending this chanter to a buyer. Also, the buyer of this chanter can also have my place on his queue (about 1 1/2 to 2 years to go- his current wait I believe is about 6 yrs. now). The reason I'm selling this chanter is due to a cut back at work (I live in Michigan you know!).
