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 plain alloy mounts and mopane projecting mounts, and bag cover and cords.

I like my McCallum small pipes so much, I bought a second set for my husband. Unsurpassed quality, playability, and tone!
Beautiful and Robust

This set of Folk Pipes came quickly and as noted, ready to play. I only added a little hemp to a few joints. They are beautiful. The chanter is plastic and just as long as a Highland chanter. Though not as loud as the great Highland pipes, the sound is rich and surprisingly robust.

Well and wonderfully made. Arrived set up and ready to play (even the drones were tuned). Plays like a dream. Thank you, J Higgins, for your great product and service!
