The McCallum folk pipes are a great addition to your bagpipe collection. They are a quiet alternative to the Great Highland Bagpipe and produce a rich, melodic sound that is perfect for indoors, and small folk gatherings.
The low A note on the chanter is tuned to concert pitch A (440Hz) which means that the pipes will naturally play in the keys used by other musicians when playing traditional/folk music. The pipes come set-up, ready to play with covers and cords, a synthetic bag, moisture control system, cane chanter reed and ezeedrone synthetic drone reeds.
The pipes are made from black wood and have engraved alloy mounts and mopane projecting mounts, and bag cover and cords.
Available engraving patterns: Celtic, Fire Department, Irish, Police, Thistle, Victorian Scroll, Zoomorphic

Just received my set with thistle engravings. They sound fantastic and are beautiful. Because they use a cane chanter reed and EZdrones, the playing technique is similar to GHB. I highly recommend if you are interested in smallpipes. And, as always, excellent service /support from John and griffin!

Look terrific. Sound even better. Drones have a more rich and mellow sound than my previous small pipes. Really fun to play.
